For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case from Aries Wine & Spirits in White Plains.
That’s Amore Moscato is bottle 12 in our series. To see the rest, click here: Mixed Case on Small Bites.

I have to edit it down to fit in the paper, but here is Aries owner Andrea Kish’s full description of the wine.
Name of Wine: That’s Amore Moscato
Region: Puglia, Italy; the southern province of Puglia grows large quantities of Muscat grape which it has traditionally made into many different types of wines.
Tasting notes: lightly bubbly and juicy with apricot, peach and melon tones that keep it fresh and sweet.
Goes with: alone as a light aperitif or sipping on the porch; spicy foods; and with fruit, tarts, cheese cake and cheeses for dessert.
Why we chose it: festive and low in alcohol at 6%, everyone can enjoy a toast and grandma will probably drink a whole glass!
