Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A refreshing sweet dessert wine with fragrances of peach and orange blossom, followed by a similar palate with a hint of rose, then a long, floral orange blossom finish. low alcohol at 6%. Great VPB! A beautiful accompaniment with fresh strawberries and cake.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Full on peach and floral bliss, and at 6%, you can easily (too easily?) drain a bottle by yourself. 91 Points. -Rachel (ottawawinejournal.com)
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

At just 6% alcohol this Moscato D'Asti is a perfect way to end a delicious Italian wine a food inspired evening. An abundance of peach and white blossoms. Some citrus and minerality cleanse and refresh. Not overly sweet. A lovely companion to our strawberry sponge dessert but equally yummy on it's own. Not yet in Ontario market.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A new adventure for a very storied winery, Ruffino recently began producing one of Italy's sweetest liquid treats, the infamous low alcohol, lightly bubbly Moscato D'Asti. This Moscato D'Asti has textbook peach and orange blossom notes leading to a long sweet and refreshing finish. Pairs exceptionally well with most desserts including one of my summer favourites - fresh fruit parfait with chocolate.
Please note that this wine is not yet available in the Canadian market.
