Moscato d’Asti DOCG

An extraordinary dessert wine – sweet yet fresh and intensely aromatic – whose delicate sparkle and lively grape flavors are the pride of Moscato d’Asti. These pure Moscato Bianco (which goes back to Roman times) grapes are grown in Marcarini’s Cascina Sargentin vineyards in Neviglie, right in the heart of the appellation. It is intensely aromatic, with fruity and floral notes. The quintessential dessert wine, easy to pair with freshly baked desserts. For Marcarini, this wine represents happiness and friendship.

Tasting notes:

Brilliant straw-yellow color with soft green reflections. A delicate white froth evolves into a very fine and persistent perlage. Its full nose is aromatic, floral and fruity as well as intense and persistent. The taste, which is pleasantly sweet and refreshing due to the low alcohol content and correct acidity, is smooth and rich with musky sensations typical of the Moscato grape - the wine’s aromatic persistence is very long and intense.
