Italy produces sparkling wines from more different grape varieties than any other country in the world.
The best known is Asti, formerly known as Asti Spumante, an aromatic, semisweet sparkler made from Moscato grapes grown all over southeastern Piedmont but especially around the famous wine towns of Asti and Alba.
South of Asti and east of Alba is the tiny village of Canelli, where Asti production began in the latter part of the 1800s. This Village is such a hub of Asti production that this particular type of Moscato is sometimes called Moscato Canelli.
It has another name too, Moscato Bianco, white muscat. Both names refer to the same grape known as Muscat Blanc à Petits grains in French.
Today we bring you this Bright straw yellow color with abundant and continuous fine bubbles. Fully floral in the aroma with hints of fresh roses and jasmine, overripe apricots, and hints of syrup. Creamy bite, with abundant bubbles that break with finesse, with a slightly sweet-nectarine avocado taste. Wide aftertastes of flowers and fruits, with a friendly flavor and light aftertaste.
This is a perfect match for this season!
