MOSCATO D’ASTI, THE HEART OF ITAL­IAN SWEET WHITE WINE

Los Angeles Confidential - - Invited -

Moscato d’Asti is one of the most renowned and highly re­garded Ital­ian sweet wines, pro­duced in the Pied­mont re­gion. Char­ac­ter­ized by ex­cep­tion­ally high qual­ity and sur­pris­ingly sim­ple pro­duc­tion meth­ods, Moscato d’Asti is a very nat­u­ral agri­cul­tural prod­uct. It re­tains the in­tense, musky aroma of the grapes from which it is made, Moscato Bianco. A sip brings to the palate spe­cial notes that re­mind one of wis­te­ria, lime, peach and apri­cot, along with hints of sage, lemon and or­ange blos­soms. The low al­co­hol con­tent of Moscato d’Asti (about 5% by vol­ume) makes it ideal for ev­ery­one, and par­tic­u­larly ap­pro­pri­ate for hol­i­day cel­e­bra­tions, birth­days and wed­dings.
