About This Wine:
There’s the “frizzante” style of the wine, which accounts for the engaging effervescence. “Frizzante” is Italian for “semi-sparkling,” and is a term used to designate a unique, fruity, and refreshingly low-alcohol, semi-sparkling wine.
Then there’s the impression in the mouth — full and sweet with mouth-watering acidity and a very long, sweet finish. It’s the kind of wine that delights and dazzles the palate, and then invites — no, make that demands — another sip.
Alberto Conti crafts a number of top-quality wines, including a magnificent Moscato d’Asti from — you guessed it — the Asti growing area of Italy’s Piedmont region. It’s the combination of sweetness and low alcohol that makes Moscato d’Asti in general — and Alberto Conti’s rendition in particular — so beguiling. Frizzante… effervescent… fruity… refreshing… full… sweet… mouthwatering… It all adds up to a wine that’s pure magic in the glass.
