10/15/2011 - EleonoraScholes wrote: NR

12% alc. Bottled 16/04/09. Very surprisingly a well preserved wine with no age development. Light-to-medium grapey Muscat aromas, fresh palate with a certain volume, no bitterness in a back palate that mars many a dry Muscat. Very drinkable. G. Tasted at home.
