maturing moscato?

Posted by mousking1, Dec 23, 2009.

i know some wines taste taste better with age and other are just as good or better if drank close to when you get it. i always thought moscato fell into the latter category, but last night i had some bartenura moscato vintage 2009, and it didn't taste nearly as good as the the 2007 or 2008 i've had over the past months, it had a rubbery taste and reminded me of barefoot wine's moscato.

so my questions is, should i let my other bottle age a year or is it just not going to be a very good vintage from bartenura?

I think you found an off, or bad bottle. Moscato is usually all about the fruit and freshness. I've had bottles that have been around for a year, or longer, and I've never thought that any showed improvement over a fresher bottle. The rubbery taste sounds like a defect to me.
