The Winebow Group

Moscato d'Asti DOCG 2012


Wine Description

Made from the highly aromatic Moscato grape, this classic Piedmontese sparkler is produced using the Charmat method. Fresh and fruity, this dessert-style wine is always best enjoyed very soon after release.

Tasting Notes

Straw-yellow in color, this wine shows lively aromas of fresh grapes, honey, white flowers and orange blossoms. Rich and sweet but rounded by brisk acidity.  The moderate alcohol makes it a natural for any brunch entree on the menu.

Food Pairing

This lovely and well-balanced sparkler makes a great choice for almond cookies or fresh fruit.
