ich color, the nose is full of ripe fresh fruits, with cantaloupe melon, nectarine, and blossom. Sweet yet refreshing with a light effervescence.
These wines are made with a quick, gentle pressing technique dubbed the “Asti method,” a nickname that helps to entrench the region’s reputation for making fun, indulgent wines that are destined to keep the party going.
It’s said that Moscato d’Asti has been producing wines since the days of the ancient Romans. These days, the name of the appellation says it all. Located in the hills that overlook the Italian town of Asti, this region’s reputation is anchored by the creation of semi-sweet, low-alcohol wine that’s equipped with a light sparkle.
Food Pairing Notes
Salty snacks like cured meats, nuts, or blue cheese are also a nice counterbalance to Moscato's sweetness.
