Bartenura Moscato review: What's its alcohol content?
Bartenura Moscato wine’s alcohol content is 5%.
In case you wonder about alcohol content or more precisely Alcohol By Volume, i.e. ABV, measure the alcoholic strength of a drink.
There is a direct relationship between the sugar left in the wine after the alcoholic fermentation has taken place, i.e. Residual Sugar or RS, and ABV.
During alcoholic fermentation, the yeast transforms the sugar in the grape juice into alcohol.
Grapes with high residual sugar will therefore produce dry wine with a high ABV.
How many calories are in a glass of Bartenura Moscato wine?
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture  a 5-ounce glass will contain about 120 to 130 calories.
Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram. So a wine with high ABV will have a higher calories per glass than a wine with low ABV.
Furthermore, sugar contributes to the calorie count.
A dry wine will usually have 4 calories per gram vs a sweet wine that will have around 20 calories per gram of carbs, which include sugar.
Since Moscato is a sweet wine expect more than 130 calories per 5-ounce glass.
What is Bartenura?
Here is an extract from the Bartenura bottle:
“The production of Bartenura Moscato has been designed to yield a wine that preserves the wonderful rich aromas of the Moscato grape… Best served chilled.“
This is a sweet and luscious bottle of Moscato that for roughly ~$13 offers a good value for your money.
Pear, apricot, mango, citrus, and honey flavors will complement many dishes from veggie, salami, spicy dishes, fish, cheese, and dessert.
