Its name comes from the latin “muscum” (musk), thanks to its characteristic aroma. Moscato d’Asti DOCG is obtained by vinifying 100% of white Moscato grapes, a Mediterranean vine with a long and rich history. This varietal achieved DOCG status in 1993.
It is a sweet wine, slightly fizzy with a very low alcohol content. Ideally, it is paired with fruit and dessert. Moscato d’Asti is produced in 45 municipalities in the province of Asti, Alessandria and Cuneo and in compliance with the disciplinary, it must be vinified from grapes harvested in DOC areas. Il Botolo Moscato has a residual sugar level of about 110 g per liter.
Moscato is available starting from December and January and should be drunk young. Recently, however, il Botolo Moscato DOCG has become particularly appreciated in Asia, where chefs are revolutionizing its traditional use, proposing spicy food as an ideal pairing. This new way of enjoying Moscato allows Moscato lovers to drink older vintages as well. Moscato d’Asti is a must try wine, and
will be sure to surprize even the most demanding palates.
