Col dei Venti Moscato d'Asti PDF Print E-mail

By Cory Sebastian of Sebastian's Fine Food & Spirits

Piedmont, Italy
2011


You have just finished dinner, feeling quite glutinous after taking that last bite of pureed potatoes, and could really go for something sweet. You can skip the peach cobbler—you can have it in a glass! The perfect solution. This moscato is of sweet peaches from start to finish, with hints of honey and a gorgeous golden color. A subtle effervescence was noted; however, it was overshadowed by the sweetness. I wouldn't recommend serving this before dinner for anyone who doesn't care for sweet whites, but it would please even the biggest skeptic after dinner. Another reasonably-priced moscato, one could find it retail for around $15—money well spent on a great finish to a great meal.

Looking for a nice bottle of wine to bring to your next girls’ night or family gathering? Jam Jar has the perfect sweet wine waiting for you. The South African company Cape Classics created Jam Jar in an effort to produce a variety of sweet wines aimed to meet the quality and price point of today’s consumer. Each bottle has an approachable taste that is sure to please even the non-wine drinkers at your next gathering.

Cape Classics currently produces two varieties of Jam Jar. The white Moscato (which retails for $8 - $12) and the red Sweet Shiraz (from $7 to little more than $10) have great curb appeal, evoking the look and feel of a picnic in a bottle. The Sweet Shiraz bursts with blackberry, blueberry and raspberry flavor. It goes down easy and leaves a pleasantly sweet, but not overpowering, aftertaste. Jam Jar’s second option is the Moscato. Boasting a light and refreshing taste and accompanied by the undeniable flavor and aroma of fresh peach, this Moscato is perfect for a summer event or a cold winter evening spent longing for some beach weather! With a reasonable price tag, Jam Jar offers a selection of sweet wines that are a sure step up from the popular boxed wines reminiscent of our drunken college days. So, for those of you searching for a quality sweet wine—or even if you’re typically not a wine drinker, but want a bottle to help break into the wonderful world of wine—give Jam Jar a try.

Cava D.O., Spain
Non-Vintage

Poor man’s Champagne? Maybe, but don’t tell the Spanish folks that! The Penedes area of Catalonia has been a hotbed for quality Spanish bubbly since the 1870s. For the most part, native Spanish grape varietals are used for cava. In this case, the breakdown is 55% Macabeo, 40% Parellada and 5% Chardonnay. Two native grapes, one classic Champagne varietal. The result is an explosion of melon, mineral, small bubbles and enough tasty fruit to make Don Quixote wanna charge full-speed toward the opening of the bottle and never come out!

Pound for pound, a good bottle of cava represents one of the truest alternatives to the much more expensive of all bubblies, which is Champagne. I say this because cava is made in the same style as Champagne, known as the Methode Champenoise method. This means that the secondary fermentation occurs within the same bottle, the same as in Champagne. Sure, Champagne is king, but Spanish cava still represents the best bang for your windmill … er, buck.

Let’s begin with bubbles. She’s currently up next and will be dancing to “Eye of the Tig-” … wait … er … wrong “bubbles.” If you’re talking about a festive, holiday-inspired wine that pretty much epitomizes celebration, it starts with bubbly. In Italy, that bubbly is called Prosecco. Prosecco is the quintessential sparkling wine from Italy, hands down. This version is comprised of the Glera grape, and it hails from the famed wine region known as the Veneto. This particular example is done in the “frizzante” style. Frizzante, you ask? A long-lost member of the Wu-Tang Clan? Not quite, but it is a term that describes a style of Prosecco as being just “slightly sparkling.”

Italians realize the importance of pairing wine with food, and Prosecco may be the most food-friendly sparkler on the planet. The bracing acidity, paired with the smaller “bead” (bubbles), creates a flattering accompaniment to a wide array of Italian fare. Cheese? Yes. Seafood? Hell yes. Auto grill paninis? Uh huh, tried it. Not too shabby. In fact, the only time that’s not right for enjoying Prosecco, according to most native Italians that I’ve met, is when you’re sleeping.
