An aromatic vine that has always yielded a famous wine. Closely linked to the Piedmontese spirit of resourcefulness, Moscato d’Asti has an ancient history. A pioneer of the Italian sparkling wine tradition at the end of the 19th century, it lights up glasses with a brilliant golden color; its heavenly scent and rich aroma make it particularly intense and intriguing. A sublime pair to baked desserts and dry pastries, it also perfectly matches custard cream.
Bright straw yellow with flecks of gold. Fine perlage and persistent foam. The nose is intense and delicate, releasing a mixture of fruity (yellow peach and apricot), aromatic (musky aroma typical of the Moscato Bianco grape) and floral (hints of orange blossom, wisteria and lime) essences.
