Vinous Media (91)- "Vivid straw- yellow. Aromas of apricot, licorice, lime, jasmine and lilac. Dense but fresh, offering open-knit but not at all candied flavors of peach, apricot and sweet spices. Finishes long with repeating notes of white flowers and suggestions of grapery reduction. Made with grapes grown in 41 - to 47 - year- old Moscato Bianco vineyards. "
Wine Advocate (91)- "One of the most regreshing aperitif wines money can buy, a Moscato d'Asti is extremely low in alcohol (usually under 6%). No one makes a better, slightly sparkling Moscato than La Spinetta. They offer multiple simgle vineyard offerings, all of which are usually outstanding. The vineyard difference are less important than the fact that readers should purchase the 1999 vintage, as these wines are usually released within three months of the harvest and are meant to be consumed before the next vintage. La Spinetta's 1999 Vigneto Biancospino exhibits abundant quantities of the fruit cocktail-like nose with scents of melons, oranges, apricots, and peaches. Delicious, pure, and light, with a slight frothiness before the next vintage. "
