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.
Bright straw-yellow in color, Ruffino Moscato d'Asti begins with vibrant aromas of sweet citrus, peach and orange blossoms on the nose, giving way to notes of sage and white stone fruit on the palate. Its low alcohol content makes it an ideal aperitivo, or the perfect accompaniment to fruit and bread based desserts, such as Panettone, fresh fruit salads of figs and melon, or with bread and salami.
|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.
|Moscato d’Asti’s low alcohol makes it a very versatile food companion. It pairs particularly well with almost any type of dessert. A classic Italian pairing is with fresh bread, salami, figs and melon. Moscato d’Asti also tastes wonderful with spicy Asian foods.
