Group consensus: This is a party for your mouth!
Moscato d’Asti is a sparkling wine made from the Moscato Bianco grape in Italy’s Piedmont region. It is fruity and semi-sweet with pleasant effervescence.
This Moscato d’Asti is a pale yellow with medium bubbles. White peaches, honey, and wildflowers in the nose. Smooth and light in the mouth with crisp white peach and pear flavors, hints of lemon, and a bit of minerality. Surprisingly well balanced for a semi-sweet wine.
Tasters loved the addition of a fresh strawberry slice to their glass!
