NV Luccio Moscato d'Asti

 

BEST BUY
"Creamy, soft and very floral, this would pair with fruit-based desserts or sponge cake. Thick and foamy layers of sweetness and soapy perlage move slowly over the palate."

Wine Spectator Magazine, November 2012


Tasting Notes

Luccio Moscato d’Asti is fresh, fragrant, and frizzante with bright, floral aromas that give way to flavors of ripe stone fruit, tangerines, and honey. This wine is concentrated and flavorful, but not overly rich or heavy; sweet, yet balanced.

Food Pairings

Pairs well with before dinner, after dinner, spicy dishes, tiramisu, panettone, toasted hazelnuts, apricots and figs drizzled with honey or cake.

Vineyard & Winemaking Notes

The grapes hand harvested and grown in combination of limestone and sandstone soils from the cool, hilly Asti region. The grapes are crushed, chilled to almost freezing in stainless steel vats, fermented and bottled to capture the resulting carbon dioxide. The result is a low alcohol (5.5% maximum by law) slightly effervescent wine, or what the Italians call vino frizzante.
