This sweet wine from the Piedmont region in northwestern Italy is known for its fragrant and aromatic bouquet and low alcohol content, which makes it incredibly pleasant to drink – and widely popular. Ruffino Moscato d’Asti, with its frizzante wine style and balanced acidity, is a versatile companion for lunch or dinner fare
The bouquet is very fragrant and displays aromas characteristic of the Moscato varietal. Hints of sage and citrus fruit give way to distinct notes of peach and orange blossoms. The wine delivers a pleasantly sweet taste, perfectly tempered by the freshness offered by its refined bubbles. Flavors of sage and fresh white stone fruit linger on the palate.
The first stage of Moscato production is a traditional white wine process. The second stage uses the Charmat method in which the wine undergoes a secondary fermentation in tanks and is bottled under pressure to produce light, gently sparkling bubbles and to preserve the fresh, fruit characteristics of the Moscato Bianco grapes.
