Recognized as the “original . . . imported blue bottle Moscato” and the “best-selling imported Italian Moscato in the U.S.,” Bartenura Moscato is a “slightly effervescent” Moscato that boasts “notes of wildflowers, ripe melons and honey followed by flavors of pear, nectarines and apricot.” Coming in at an incredibly refreshing and sessionable 5% ABV, the newly canned Bartenura Moscato is “a convenient option for consumers to enjoy . . . when they may not want to open a full bottle, or to where glass may be an issue – pools, beaches, picnics.”
“Aside from the convenience factor, Bartenura is the perfect summer drink – delightfully refreshing, sweet but not too sweet, slightly effervescent and with a lower alcohol content then typical wine (5% ABV versus 11%-13%).”, says wine expert Gabriel Geller, Director of PR and Manager of Wine Education Royal Wine Corp. “We’re finding more consumers want to enjoy a more mellow experience when they drink, and Bartenura’s lower alcohol content provides just that.” Mr. Geller added, “We’ve been looking at alternate sizes and formats for alcohol packaging. We’ve been working very closely with the winery and packaging facility to make sure the cans maintain the signature aroma, flavor and bubble that’s made Bartenura Moscato such a success. Consumers looking for the experience and outstanding value they’ve come to expect from Bartenura’s iconic blue bottle will not be disappointed!”
4-packs of 250ml cans (8.5 oz. or about 1.7 glasses of wine) of Bartenura Moscato are rolling out across the U.S. now and will be available Year-Round. You can expect to find these new cans at fine wine retailers for the suggested retail price of $15 per 4-pack. Prost!
