Moscato d’Asti is usually considered a dessert sparkling white wine that is produced in the province of Asti of Piedmont, Northwest of Italy. This style of wine has been made and popularized as early as the 14th century during the medieval times, and traditionally made from 100% Muscat à Petits Grains variety, better known as Muscat Bianco in Italy.
Moscato d’Asti is being produced fizzante style, meaning fizzy, light, sweet and low in alcohol, which by Italian wine law only allows 5% to 6%. Traditionally, this low alcohol drink has been part of the Piedmont lunchtime culture, especially in the wine industry, which does not affect much on the work rate of the people after lunch. Furthermore, it is also drunk during dinner, especially with their multicourse meals, re-energizing and cleansing the palate, not to forget together with end of the day desserts and as a digestif.
This fizzy delightfully sweet wine has a lively nose of rich tropical fruits, peach and beautiful aromas of white flowers. Soft effervescence tickles the palate and provides a luscious mouth-feel, in addition to the fantastic balance between acidity and sweetness. FOOD PAIRING:
