90 Points Wine Advocate |The 2022 Moscofilero (in the Skouras transliteration) comes in with 3.5 grams of residual sugar, 6.4 of total acidity and 12.1% alcohol. This is sourced from 31-year-old vines at 650 meters in altitude. As I like to say, this "regular" Moschofilero (Skouras has an alternative spelling) is the kinder and gentler version as compared to Skouras's Salto in this report. This rounds off the acidity that the Salto shows and balances it with a little sugar, resulting in a wine that is less tart but not even a little sweet. Like its Salto sibling, though, this is beautifully structured, showing some tension on the lingering finish. The fruit is more expressive than on the Salto, but its not completely developed. The Salto may have some more upside potential, but this seems to be the better-balanced wine this year. It should also age pretty decently, perhaps for the rest of the decade. Be conservative there, though. For the moment, giving it a couple of months more in the bottle wouldn't hurt.
