More About Moscato Wine
Moscato d’Asti is expanding in popularity among wine enthusiasts for its lighter, sweeter flavor profile and lower alcohol content (5 to 8% abv). Known for its blend of sweet peach, orange blossom and nectarine flavors, Pink Moscato is typically created from Muscat Blanc grapes, possibly one of the oldest cultivated varieties in the world.
It dazzles wine enthusiasts with its aromatic fragrance, light fruit-forward palate, and spritzy character as a frizzante. Wine expert Stacy Slinkard describes its appeal as such. “Moscato’s inherent aromatics are simply stunning – orange blossom, honeysuckle, almonds, ginger and ultra expressive fruit dominated by green grapes, citrus tones and ripe peach nuances. From pear and apple, to orange and lime with consistent appearances in the ripe, juicy peach and apricot category, Moscato’s flavors are extraordinarily fruit-filled. The delicate cascade of bubbles, light body and sweet surprise culminate to woo and win many unsuspecting palates to the wide world of wine.”
