Moscato d’Asti

Definition

Wine

  • a slightly sparkling (frizzante) white wine produced in the same DOCG as Asti. The main difference is that when making Moscato d’Asti the fermentation is stopped sooner, producing a wine that is sweeter and has less carbon dioxide so is less fizzy. It is sold in normal wine bottles with a normal cork rather than a Champagne cork.
