Emerald straw color. Fresh, floral aromas of honeysuckle, dried apricots, orange blossom, bubblegum, and lemon buttercream with a satiny, bright, off-dry light body and an effortless, medium-length chalk and pineapple finish with no oak flavor. A pleasing and vibrant dry Moscato.

White Moscato

Serve in a White Wine Glass
Grown around the world, the Moscato grape produces some of the most delightful sweet wines, ranging from very delicate to quite lush. The perfumes of a Moscato wine are heavenly, with notes of peach, apricot, orange blossom and ginger that are dominant. These wines are made to emphasize the aromatics and freshness, so most examples of Moscato are made without oak and are released early for immediate pleasure.

Moscato d'Asti, a lightly sparkling wine (frizzante) with only 5.5% alcohol, has become an amazing sales phenomenon over the past decade, while Asti Spumante, a sparkling wine from the territory is also very popular.

Moscato is a delight enjoyed on its own or with simple desserts, such as pound cake or fresh strawberries or peaches.
