Natalie's Score: 89/100

Honeysuckle sweetness of a spring morning with floral breezes gently blowing lace curtains. Slight fizz and spritz. Perfect on it's own before or after dinner or dip some biscotti for additional pleasure. With it's low alcohol it's the perfect hammock wine (you won't fall out). Try it with hazelnut cake of coffee cake.

Moscato d'Asti food pairings: spicier main dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Light and fragrant with aromas of sweet red apple, peach, orange blossom and white flowers. The acidity and fizz offset the sweetness so it doesn't overwhelm. With its low alcohol, I like this as a weekend "breakfast wine" with pancakes, waffles, bacon, etc. Treat yourself!
Pretty as a spring day, just as fragrant, soft and inviting. Great aperitif. Slightly sweet and fizzy. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
