Luccio Moscato d'Asti is fresh, fragrant, and frizzante with bright, floral aromas that give way to flavors of ripe stone fruit, tangerines, and honey. This wine is concentrated and flavorful, but not overly rich or heavy; sweet, yet balanced.
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.

BEST BUY - Wine Enthusiast Magazine, December 2012
"Creamy, soft and very floral, this would pair with fruit-based desserts or sponge cake. Thick and foamy layers of sweetness and soapy perlage move slowly over the palate."
