Luccio Moscato d'Asti
Region: Piedmonte, Italy
Slightly sweet, slightly fizzy (frizzante), Luccio Moscato d’Asti is lavishly fruity, with tastes of apricots and figs laced with honey.
Best served chilled in a wine glass (not a flute), Luccio Moscato d’Asti is a superb wine to complement fruits, desserts, or simply on its own.
Wine Growing Conditions
The wine shares its name with the Moscato grapes that are sourced from the cool, hilly Asti region within the province of Piedmont in northwestern Italy, one of the most important DOCG wine growing regions in Italy.
The grapes are crushed, chilled to almost freezing in stainless steel vats, fermented and bottled to capture the resulting carbon dioxide. The result is a low alcohol (5.5% maximum by law) slightly effervescent wine, or what the Italians call vino frizzante.
