A Thanksgiving Wine To Pair With Your Apple Pie- Santi Moscato Montedoro

Sometimes pairing the right wine with dessert at Thanksgiving can be a challenge.  It can be trying to find a wine that pairs well with apple and pumpkin pie but that is not overly sweet.  Santi Moscato Montedoro 2010 is a great wine choice that won’t overpower your traditional Thanksgiving dessert.

Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine

Santi Moscato Montedoro pours a pale gold in the glass.  The nose is attractive with sweet aromas of pineapple, peach, and underlying floral notes.  The palate is sweet yet not to the point it overwhelms the taste buds.  Tastes of peach and honeydew are balanced with a slightly spicy finish.  A nice pairing for your Thanksgiving desserts at a very affordable price!

My Wine Rating- B/B+

Food Pairing Suggestions- Pair with apple pie, pumpkin pie, or a salad with roasted pears and blue cheese
