2011 Risata Moscato d'Asti
BEST BUY - 88 Points
"Dense with lemon-scented fruit, this is fresh and vibrant. There's a spike of ginger and licorice in the finish."
Wine & Spirits Magazine, December 2012
Risata Moscato d’Asti is fresh, fragrant, and frizzante with vibrant, flavors and aromas of ripe stone fruit, tangerines, and honey. The wine is concentrated and flavorful, but not overly rich or heavy; sweet, yet balanced.
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.
