Yellow straw color. Aromas of orange zest, tangerine, lemon, pear blossom, elderflower, and banana chip with a round, crisp, bubbly, sweet medium body and a tingling, relaxed candied peach, candied apricot, and vanilla and cream finish with no oak flavor. A fun and fruity sparkler for long brunches.

Piedmont Asti Spumante

Serve in a Champagne Flute
Asti Spumante is Italy's largest producing appellation and a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in southeastern Piedmont. Made from Moscato Bianco grapes (aka Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains in France), these sweet sparkling wines boast bountiful apricot, peach, and honey notes. Asti Spumante is usually 7-9.5% ABV, truly sparkling, and not to be confused with Moscato d'Asti which has a lower ABV and is only slightly sparkling ("frizzante").
