Nothing better than a Moscato bianco wine to enhance a moment of celebration: aromatic, sweet, floral and fresh, it is the ideal accompaniment to pastries, desserts and Christmas sweets.
In Piedmont they have skilfully introduced this variety of grapes and, under the name Asti DOCG, Italy has achieved worldwide fame. The types listed here, Asti Spumante (more commonly called Asti) and Moscato d'Asti are two interpretations that enhance the aromatic character of Moscato with two different vinification processes.
Asti Spumante DOCG is a complete sparkling wine: its internal pressure reaches 4-5 bar and the alcohol is between 6% and 9%. It is less sweet than Moscato d'Asti, since the post-fermentation sugar residue is lower.
Moscato d'Asti DOCG is a sparkling wine, with a lower quantity of dissolved carbon dioxide: its pressure does not exceed 2.5 bar. Its pleasant sweetness is obtained by blocking the fermentation process; in this way the developed alcohol remains between 5% and 6%.
