Elio Perrone Moscato d'Asti Sourgal 2011
Vinified for immediate consumption and bottled in November. As more Americans have discovered its extraordinary lusciousness, vivid fruit, soft mousse and captivating perfume, it is no surprise that the following for Moscato d’Asti has grown dramatically in recent years. As a summer sipper, Moscato is without peer. Ambrosial with melon and prosciutto (a classic combination), it is also a superb light dessert wine, perfect with melon, pears or strawberries (especially if the fruit has been steeped in Moscato beforehand!).

A fantastic little sparkler with aromas of peach, orange blossom and honeysuckle. Delicate, delicious, and perfectly balanced!
