Pronounced aromas of honeysuckle, vanilla bean & orange blossom. Delicate flavors of Asian pear, nectarine, peach, meyer lemon & grapefruit.
Made with Moscato Bianco (white Moscato) grapes.
Easy drinking with persisent bubbles & lower alcohol level than most sparklers (5%-7% ABV).
Moscato d’Asti is a close cousin with fewer bubbles (frizzante style) & even lower alcohol level (5% ABV max.).
Serve cold. Pairs well with sweet desserts & white chocolate. Perfect with apple tarts & cream, strawberries or sweet peach pie. A great summertime drink.
