Moscato Passito-Produced with 100% Moscato grapes
Never have I ever... tasted a cake that tasted so delicious. So I took another slice. And then I realized it wasn't perhaps the cake but the wine. So I drank more wine.
A few such rounds and there was neither any of that cake 🍰 left nor a drop of that wine 🥂.🤗
Pairing a dessert 🍰 with an artisanal dessert wine may often feel like an unnecessary luxury.
But if you pair it right, it will deliciously change your eating of desserts for ever♾. That much is certain.

Moscato Passito from @tenutailfalchetto featured here, is one such wine 🥂
Produced with 100% Moscato grapes. from the extraordinary terroir of Ciombi estate that lends the structure and intensity, this is Moscato in all its glory.
The steep slopes facing South help these grapes reach the perfect ripeness.
The best Moscato grapes in the Ciombi estate are selected and left to wilt on the vine for about thirty days. These grapes are then picked and fermented and the finished wine rests for one year in little French oak barrels and a further six months in the bottle.
The result is an extremely elegant, rich, intense dessert wine with flavours of crushed flowers, melon and apricot. Goes really really well with sweet desserts and cheese but also with foie gras.
(Remember the golden rule, 🎗📏 the sweetness of the wine needs to be more than the sweetness of the dessert).
Once you do,
Never will you ever...feel like having that dessert without a bottle of a delicious dessert wine again.
(To the calorie conscious, I am beginning to think it might actually optimise your dessert 🍮🎂🍩 intake 🤔
This beautiful half at $35 (Normally $42/-)
