New To Wine? Start With Dessert

Are you new to wine and not sure where to start? Well, the first question you need to ask yourself is what do you like when it comes to taste. Still unsure? Then in that case going with a traditional dessert wine may be the best place to start.

Moscato wine is one of the most popular dessert wines available and can serve as a great starting ground for wine newbies that aren’t sure what tastes they will like. Besides, who doesn’t like dessert? Here are some great valued Moscato wines.

The 2009 Ricossa Moscato d’Asti is a simple white wine. Grown in the Piemonte region of Italy, this Moscato has a long finish that isn’t as bitter as other similarly priced wines. This wine is sweet, but not too sweet. Some lite peach-like notes are apparent but not overwhelming, making it a great newbie wine.

The 2007 Castello del Poggio Moscato d’Asti is another well balanced white wine that offers a very refined fruity taste. The smoothness of the wine goes well with most any meal and the intensity is great for those looking to develop their pallet but not over do it. This Moscato’s sugar content is preserved by a refrigeration process that gives it a unique sweetness.

The 2007 Moscato Brilliant Disguise by Two Hands is an Australian wine that offers many tropical fruit notes. Often recommended to go with french foods and cheese, this Moscato has a tangy aftertaste and dried apricot finish.

New wine drinkers can find great starting wines in other dessert wines and for those meals where many of the guests are not regular wine drinkers a great Moscato can be the perfect addition.
