White gold color. Green, grassy aromas and flavors of tropical flowers and leaves, peach-pear compote, and honeyed herbs and spice with a round, vibrant, effervescent, sweet medium body and a sleek, nuanced, very long finish displaying notes of tropical fruit salad, orange and apricot sorbets, and wet sandstone. A robust, concentrated Moscato d’Asti with great fruity flavor and length.
