Moscato d'Asti is an indigenous aromatic wine characterised by orange, peach and lime notes, with a sweet taste rich in minerals. Straw yellow with greenish hues, fine perlage, slow fermentation index. Intense orange blossom, peach and thyme (the main aromas found in the grapes). Intense, elegant and lingering. The sweet sensations are well balanced with a pleasant acidity and fruity aromas typical of Muscat grapes. Ideal with pastries, cakes, fruit tarts, ice cream, biscuits. Also delicious with cheeses such as gorgonzola and in cocktails.

Luminous pale straw-green with golden tinges. Captivating aromas of orange blossom, lemon verbena, vanilla, sage and ripe grapefruit nectar. Dense, juicy and suave, presenting a multilayered, complex set of flavors similar to the aromas. The finish is very long, resonating with a floral topnote and delightful vibrancy. Outstanding, concentrated, complex and very pure Moscato d'Asti.

Honeysuckle, yellow-peach and botanical herb aromas lift out of the glass. On the foaming, savory palate, crisp acidity lifts nectarine, apricot, orange zest and thyme. It's incredibly delicious.

The pretty 2018 Moscato d'Asti pours to a creamy and foamy appearance and pale gold luminosity. The wine is beautifully fragrant with white flower, star jasmine and honey. As the wine warms in the glass, you might notice some dried sage or oregano leaf. The effect is very Mediterrean and bright. That subtle sweetness hits the spot (and is balanced against the wine's natural freshness). The alcohol content of the wine is a mere 5.5%.
