For about $15, with 5% alcohol, ideal for after dinner or mid-day sipping, the 2019 Vietti Moscato d’Asti scored 17 points on the Dionysian scale of a possible 20.

Bright straw, and filled with honeydew melon, the wine is balanced with perfect residual sugars and natural acids. Don’t age these wines even though a year or two can help.

It was served with a lemon chiffon pie. The wine should always be a hint sweeter than the dessert to have both show their best. This sure did.

Vietti wines are always among the top quality wines for Italy. You can never have enough Vietti wines. In Vino Veritas.
