Sparkling Wine | Muscat/Moscato
Castello del Poggio Moscato d'Asti Sparkling Wine is made from the muscat grape and originates from the Piedmont region of Italy. The story of Sweet Life begins with the story of Moscato. Originating in Piedmont, home of some of Italy's most sought-after wines, its slightly-sweet, refreshingly low-alcohol personality was the inspiration for the entire Castello Del Poggio Sweet Collection. Fermentation takes place until the wine reaches 5% alcohol. The grape's natural sugar content is then preserved through refrigeration, which gives the wine its nuanced sweetness and aromatic profile. Castello del Poggio Moscato d'Asti 2017 is straw yellow in color with golden reflections. It offers an intense bouquet with scents of orange blossoms, honeysuckle, musk, and peaches. A delicate, semi-sweet palate with subtle notes of ripe pear and apple; leads to a long finish. It is light, with an agile and elegant – yet compact – structure. Medium freshness and low minerality make this wine a pleasure to drink. It pairs well with delicate desserts, Thai spice, mild to semi-aged cheeses, or fresh fruit. It is also delicious with ice cream, or just on its own as an accompaniment to conversation among friends. Enjoy!
