Saracco Moscato d’Asti 2015
Ciao belle bolle. We’ve noticed a certain craziness over this sweet, gently sparkling white from the Piedmont region of Italy lately. So, we’ve decided to bring you the one which Parker’s Antonio Galloni refers to as “the reference point producer for Moscato d’Asti”, with “no shortage of personality or pure class”… Behold the Paolo Saracco Moscato d’Asti. A little frizzante, and a lot of personality. Oh yeah, they serve the 2014 vintage by the glass at Eleven Madison Park… It’s a great after dinner drink, or pair it with most any fruit or dessert which comes to mind, even chocolate! If you haven’t had one yet, this is the Moscato d’Asti you’ll want to try. Venga ottenerlo, winelovers!!

Beverage Tasting Institute: "Silvery straw color. Bright, floral, fruity earthy aromas and flavors of honeysuckle, orange custard, and lanolin lotion with a silky, tangy, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a sleek, interesting, long honeyed apricots and lemon sorbet finish with no oak. A delicious fruity, floral and vibrant Moscato d'Asti."
Winery: "COLOUR: Straw yellow with greenish hues, fine perlage, slow fermentation index. BOUQUET: intense orange blossom, peach and thyme (the main aromas found in the grapes) TASTE: intense, elegant and lingering. The sweet sensations are well balanced with a pleasant acidity and fruity aromas typical of Muscat grapes.
