ROBERT PARKER: 92/100 FOR MOSCADELLO DI MONTALCINO 2006 AURICO VILLA POGGIO SALVI

Late Harvest Moscato Grapes fuel the brightness and the intensity of the 2006 Moscadello di Montalcino Vendemmia Tardiva Aurico, a release of 2.666 bottles packaged in 375 milliliter glass. The wine open to a gold or amber color with orange and copper highlights and makes for tasty dippings with some biscotti or shortbread. Aged 14 years after the harvest now, there are caramelized aromas that remind me of Vin Santo with honey, sun-dried apricot, brown sugar and almond marzipan. Traditional Moscadello is usually less opulent than this wine, but there is nothing wrong with abundant sweetness and richness you get here.
