Have you heard about Moscato d’ Asti DOCG?
Moscato is a misunderstood Italian grape. I know what you are thinking. Moscato is super sweet. It doesn’t always have to produce super sweet wines, although it offers a range of sweetness. I first poured this wine at a dinner hosted at my apartment a few years ago, and recall that approaching the last course, dessert, we paired it with an Asti Spumante DOCG, which changed how my guests perceived Moscato after that; since the bubbles and gentle sweetness paired delicately with a greek yogurt based dessert and blueberry compote. So let’s learn to identify a Moscato d’Asti DOCG.
