[ Home > Wines > Muscat (Moscato) > Risata Moscato d' Asti 2013 ]|
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.
Pairs well with before dinner, after dinner, spicy dishes, tiramisu, panettone, toasted hazelnuts, apricots and figs drizzled with honey or cake.
Asti, Piedmont DOCG, Italy
Vineyard & Winemaking Notes
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.
