Tasting Notes

Family-owned La Spinetta has produced this wine since 1978 when it was the first single vineyard Moscato made in Italy - Bricco Quaglia is the name of the vineyard. The Moscato d'Asti grape, known as Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains in France 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. 



These one bottle packs of La Spinetta's Moscato d'Asti are great to send to a friend with a sweet-ish tooth or if you want to try out this slightly sweet, slightly sparkling wine yourself. If you are looking for more than one bottle as part of a mixed case take a look at the Bricco Quaglia 2018 or the fellow single vineyard Moscato, Biancospino.




The wine is not too sweet because it's got a citrus tang and lovely acidity. It's quite a delicate wine with a fine mousse. You'll find grape, apple, pear and orange blossom aromas and on the palate add to those lychee, lemon and a hint of peach. Drink on its own as an aperitif, at parties or with desserts including rich chocolate mousse or Christmas Pudding.



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

Producer's Notes

"Colour: yellow with green reflections. Bouquet: sweet and sexy, deliciously crisp green apples and honeysuckle. Taste: this wine surprises with its remarkable freshness and brilliant fruit flavors, reminiscent of apple, spiced pear and honey"
