Moscato d’Asti Docg

Tasting characteristics

Appearance: bright straw yellow, with fine and persistent perlage; it maintains limited pressure, as recommended by the tradition of this wine.
Bouquet: tempting, immensely fresh and intense, it reveals decisive fruit notes, with a clear predominance of sage.
Flavour: expansive and enveloping, but not too sweet; the typical aroma of Moscato grapes is naturally prevalent and it has a very long and delicious finish.

 
It is best to serve it at temperatures between 9-10°C.

 
Superb with desserts, such as the classic Langhe hazelnut cake or apple and pine nut cake, lemon cake, fruit puffs and traditional Christmas panettone. It is also extremely particular and seductive when served with mature, slightly spicy cheeses.
To fully appreciate the fragrance of this wine, we recommend uncorking just before pouring.
