This sweet, frothy, semi-sparkling wine offers notes of orange blossom, peach and nectarine.
La Perlina, or “little pearl,” is inspired by the mythical past of the Mediterranean as depicted in Homer’s “Odyssey.” Homer’s sea was full of hope, danger, romance and adventure — qualities animated in La Perlina’s Moscato, crafted from hand-selected grapes grown on higher altitude sites in Puglia.
The wine has an orange blossom aroma and flavors of sweet peach and nectarine. La Perlina’s winemaker suggests chilling it down and enjoying it with a honeycomb-topped crostata, an Italian baked tart that sometimes is called coppi or sfogliate. It’s a double-barreled sweet treat that’s tough to resist.
A delicately sweet white wine with soft, pearl-like bubbles. Almond biscotti, fig crostata with honeycomb and pavlova topped with fresh strawberries. Moscato pairs well with most desserts, as well as cheeses, charcuterie, or antipasto plates.
