Moscato d’Asti is a lightly sweet sparkling wine produced in the town of Asti, in the Piedmont section of northern Italy. Moscato Bianco, the grape from which it is produced, is thought to have been growing in the region for many centuries. In the early 1600s, a jeweler from Milan named Giovan Battista Croce, on his riches from making royal jewelry, moved to Turin and bought his own vineyard around the towns of Montevecchio and Candia. In 1606, he published a book called Of the Excellence of Wines That Are Made on the Mountain of Turin and How to Make Them, which described the recipe for Moscato d’Asti: The stems have to first be removed from the grapes right before pressing, then the must (crushed grape juice prior to filtration) is fermented separate from the skins. Then the juice is repeatedly filtrated until it runs clean. Never mind that the prescribed method of filtering wine in those days was to use tightly wound cloth. Which often meant socks.

  • Gabbiano Moscato Moscato d'Asti 2010


    O Ya! A delightful moscato blanc from Italy with just the right amount of delicate fizz (d'asti) and sweetness. Rose petals & pears are notes I picked up. We drank down a bottle of this in a couple minutes while munching grapes & cheeses. I purchased at Trader Joe for $11. Yum. Read More

  • M & R Moscato D Asti


    This is a perfect, bubbly wine to make any occasion feel special. Tons of bubbles, but with enough flavor to not disappear the minute it is swallowed. To me, it is a near-perfect balance of sweet, just a tad bit of tart, and very small bubbles bursting which accent the flavor. I think it is best served very chilled and enjoyed right away, as it ...

    I am not an expert, but I know what I like. I always have my eye out for Moscato D'Asti, as it is my favorite. I like sweet wines. I found this at a very good price ($7.49 on Sale, regularly $14.99) at Walgreen's in Wake Forest, NC. On opening it, I thought I might not like it, as the fragrance wafting up as I opened it was not appetizing. The f... Read More
