Tasting Notes

This wine is very similar to the La Spinetta Bricco Quaglia Moscato d’Asti DOCG; if you wish to have a mixed case of the two wines just let me know & I’ll sort something out for you.

 

This is an amazing sparkling wine if you like a slightly sweeter style of wine; and even if you don’t, it manages to be both slightly sweet and yet very refreshing. It has the added benefit of being low in alcohol at 6.5%.

Biancospino is the name of the vineyard from which the grapes for this Moscato D’Asti originate; the vines are 44 – 50 years old. The Moscato d’Asti grape, known as Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains in France, is the classic Muscat grape and in this region of Italy the best grapes go into Moscato d’Asti, the rest into the notorious (“nasty”) Asti. Known for its floral aromatics and high sugar content, Moscato is also often seen in dessert wines. It is notoriously difficult to grow – yields must be kept low otherwise the sugar and the aromas disappear.

 

This wine is slightly sweet and beautifully perfumed – but not cloyingly sweet or overpoweringly aromatic because of the  lovely crisp acidity. This makes it a light, fresh sparkling wine.

The wine has aromas of grape, apple and tangerine. Flavours are similar to the aromas with lemon and a hint of peach. This is quite a delicate wine with a fine mousse but elegant and medium-bodied. Beautiful with desserts; it cuts through chocolate and other rich desserts.

Please note that this bottle is not topped with a “champagne cork” but with a standard cork which should be removed carefully with your usual corkscrew.

Food Pairing

Drink on its own as an aperitif or at parties if you want a low alcohol alternative or if you prefer a sweeter style of sparkling wine. Serve with desserts including rich desserts such as chocolate mousse and Christmas Pudding instead of sweeter more traditional dessert wines and with some cheeses including goats cheese

  • Serve at: 6 – 8oC

Producer's Notes

“Moscato Biancospino, a wine that surprises by its remarkable freshness… aromas of ripe yellow apple, tangerine, lemon ice and sweet spices; lively and pure, offering deep, complex flavors of fresh citrus fruit, sage and minerals that linger impressively on the floral and very long finish”
