2021 Paolo Saracco Moscato d'Asti DOCG, Piedmont, Italy (375ml)
It is a lightly sparkling, aromatic wine with aromas of peaches, apricots, honeysuckle, orange blossoms and lemon zest. It is complex, with good body, possessing a perfect balance between sweetness and acidity, and a beautiful persistency on the finish.
Moscato is primarily considered a dessert wine, pairing wonderfully with strawberries and stone fruits, but it also is a great counterpoint to spicy foods of all cuisines. At around 6% alcohol, it goes down easy and is an excellent accompaniment to brunch dishes, a terrific aperitif before dinner and of course a fantastic way to finish a meal.
This lovely, sweet sparkler opens with heady aromas of yellow stone fruit, spring blossoms and wild aromatic herbs. The savory palate delivers ripe apricot, creamy yellow peach, rosemary and sage. Crisp acidity not only keeps it focused and tangy, but seamlessly balances the sweetness so it's never cloying but always bright and racy. A refined, foaming mousse provides lots of finesse.
