About This Wine:
But the most famous — and arguably the best — comes from the Moscato d’Asti DOCG (denominazione di origine controllata) in the northwestern part of the country.
Moscato d’Asti is one of the most defining products of Piedmont’s winemaking culture. Its history is all Italian, the fruit of impeccable processes, respect for tradition and constant improvement. Once you become familiar with all the nuances of Moscato d’Asti, it could easily become habit forming — a beloved and coveted companion on special occasions.
Farmers in the region often don’t even wait for the lightly sparkling and enticingly sweet wine to be made. They’ll munch on the grapes for a sweet snack in the vineyard. But most of the fruit is designated for Moscato d’Asti, and a classic rendition is made by La Marenca. Floral, fruitful, sweet and bubbly, it’s a wonderful companion to spicy fare or a refreshing aperitif.
