Moscato d'Asti Wine Pairing

Moscato d’Asti is an Italian sparkling white wine produced mainly in the province of Asti, north-west Italy, and in smaller nearby regions in the provinces of Alessandria and Cuneo. The wine is sweet and low in alcohol, and often enjoyed with dessert. Thus it is considered a dessert wine.  It should be served slightly chilled.

On the palate, you can expect an impressive lineup of fresh, forward fruit with sugar levels ranging from semi-sweet to sweet and wrapped in medium acidity.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.

Moscato is downright delicious with apple desserts, fresh berries, summer salads, meringue pies, peach cobbler, hazelnut desserts and lemon-poppy breads and cakes. Moscato also pairs particularly well with spicy Asian fare, as the sweet from the wine tames the heat in the food.

While dessert is Moscato’s forte, cheese courses, charcuterie or antipasto plates can be perfect pairings for Moscato d’Asti wines.
