Moscato d'Asti DOCG


Tasting Notes

RuThe 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 Story

Many Moscato grape varieties exist, along with many styles for making wine from this versatile grape. But there is undoubtedly only one benchmark Italian Moscato: Moscato d'Asti DOCG. 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. It also is lovely to sip on its own or as a dessert wine.

Food Pairing Suggestions

Moscato d'Asti's low alcohol makes it a very versatile food companion. It pairs particularly well with almost any type of dessert. A classic Italian pairing is with fresh bread, salami, figs and melon. Moscato d'Asti also tastes wonderful with spicy Asian foods.

Winemaker's Notes

We source the grapes for this wine from the Roero, Monferrato and Langhe regions in southern Piedmont. 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.
