About This Wine:
It’s difficult to disagree with that assertion, although we’d suggest that the bubbly need not be Champagne. As Italian vintner Marco Bonfante notes, “Be they ‘Spumante’ or ‘Frizzante,’ bubbles always call for a toast — to satisfy everyone's palate and to make everybody cheer, ‘Salute!’”
Bonfante crafts a variety of wines, from single variety to single vineyard, and he takes great pride in every bottle. "I produce wines that reflect my taste,” he says. “If I don’t like a wine, it is very difficult for me to sell it.”
Marco founded his winery in 2000 with his sister Micaela, carrying on a family tradition that goes back eight generations. The 2017 Marco Bonfante Moscato d’Asti is an engaging frizzante-style wine with an intense nose, lots of mouth-watering acidity, and a very long and sweet finish.
