About This Wine
Many varieties of Muscat are made into wine.
There also are many styles of wine crafted from this versatile grape. But if you were to ask any Italian winemaker, there is only one benchmark Muscat wine: Moscato d'Asti DOCG.
This sweet wine from the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy is known for its fragrant and aromatic bouquet, balanced acidity and low alcohol content, which makes it quite pleasant to drink. It’s also a fun beverage to sip thanks to its frizzante style. Don’t feel like simply sipping? No problem. It’s also a versatile wine for serving at lunch, dinner or with dessert.
A classic Italian pairing — one that we’d recommend with the 2016 Cantina Alice Bel Colle —is fresh bread, salami, figs and melon. Moscato d'Asti also tastes wonderful with spicy Asian foods. And if you’re planning a peach or apricot-based dessert, such as a cobbler, this is your go-to wine.
