Fontanafredda Moscato d'Asti DOCG Moncucco 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

**Low Alcohol Wine** The hill of Moncucco is found in the commune of St. Stefano Belbo, in the heart of the Moscato d' Asti zone in Northern Italy. This wine is low in alcohol and produced as a sweet dessert wine style by Moscato specialists Fontanafredda. An attractive bright golden yellow in the glass, with an intensely aromatic nose of white petals, ripe peaches and lightly spiced pears. It is medium bodied with a delicious honeyed richness of concentrated grapey fruit flavours, delicately balanced with cleansing acidity and a youthfull, lively pettiance that lifts the palate and keeps the wine refreshing and dangerously easy to drink! Delightful as a refreshing glass on its own, especially as a pick me up at the end of a hot afternoon. It will accompany a range of dishes such as fruit based deserts and even foie gras or spicy Oriental foods.
