Ruffino Moscato d’Asti is pleasantly sweet and fragrant with distinct notes of peach and orange blossoms. This wine is perfectly tempered by the freshness of its refined bubbles. Look for hints of elderberry and wisteria along with a sweet white-fruit finish.
Wine Maker Notes
We source the grapes for this wine from the Roero, Monferrato and Langhe regions in southern Piedmont. The first stage of Moscato production is a traditional white wine process. The second stage uses the Charmat method in which the wine undergoes a secondary fermentation in tanks and is bottled under pressure to produce light, gently sparkling bubbles and to preserve the fresh, fruit characteristics of the Moscato Bianco grapes.
From the home of Moscato (Asti, Northern Italy), this great example of what every other Moscato producing region is striving to achieve. The perfumed nose of jasmine and honeysuckle is followed by sweet citrus on the palate, balanced by zest and a frizzante finish.
Moscato d’Asti’s low alcohol makes for a very versatile food companion. It also pairs well with almost any type of dessert. The classic Moscato pairing in Italy is with fresh bread, salami, figs, and melon. It also pairs well with spicy Asian foods.
