Batasiolo 2012  Moscato dAsti
92 points
Best Buy
Pale golden color. Interesting aromas and flavors of toasty spiced nuts, yeasty peach custard pasty, and melon with hint of apricot vinaigrette and a fruity sweet medium body and a tropical fruit, golden raisin and honey finish with a nice layer of limestone minerality. Great flavor and sense of place.

Pale golden silver color. Aromas of toasty nut brittle and peach custard tart with a frothy, tangy, light-to-medium body and a refreshing lime, kiwi, and chalk accented finish. Very nice ethereal balance and will be great at the table.
