A Moscato d’Asti tends to be low in alcohol and semi-sparkling (effervescent) with about half of the carbonation found in a typical sparkling wine (i.e. Asti Spumante.) They also tend to be highly aromatic and seductive with lusciously sweet overtones of tropical fruits counterbalanced with natural vibrant acidity. All Moscato d’Asti are produced from within the Piedmont region of Italy utilizing the Moscato Bianco grape. This summertime favorite achieved DOCG status in 1995 and has quickly become a local favorite over the last 2-3 years.

The enticing aromas of intense ripe peaches and mango coulis are only surpassed by its explosive flavors of honey-laced peaches, concentrated nectarines, and creamy mango coulis with an additional note of lemon zest on the finish. This power-packed flavor combination will leave you asking for more!
