M & R Asti Spumante Sparkling Wine NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Martini & Rossi Asti is a fruity sparkling wine made from the finest 'Moscato Bianco' grapes grown in the heart of the prestigious Italian D.O.C.G. area. Top quality ripe grapes from a single variety are fermented once only. The fermentation is stopped at two thirds of its natural sugar potential. The resulting wine is low in alcohol, low in acidity, fresh, fruity and highly aromatic. This sparkling wine is a great partner to fruity desserts, pastry and ice cream. The Martini & Rossi Asti is an excellent social wine. It is best when served fairly cold. Once the bottle has been opened, it should be kept in a bucket with ice.

Martini & Rossi:
Martini & Rossi is an iconic Italian brand of wine and vermouth, founded by Alessandro Martini and Luigi Rossi in the mid 1800s in Turin. In 1863, they produced their first vermouth, a blend of herbs and botanicals in fortified wine, which was met with instant success in the Piedmont cafes where it was introduced, during what became “aperitivo hour.” Eventually the brand expan...

Martini & Rossi is an iconic Italian brand of wine and vermouth, founded by Alessandro Martini and Luigi Rossi in the mid 1800s in Turin. In 1863, they produced their first vermouth, a blend of herbs and botanicals in fortified wine, which was met with instant success in the Piedmont cafes where it was introduced, during what became “aperitivo hour.” Eventually the brand expanded internationally and continued to grow throughout the 20th century. Of course, anyone who was around in the 1970s and 80s is familiar with the ubiquitous Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante ad campaigns, which introduced a worldwide audience to the slightly sweet style of Piedmontese sparkling wine. Their vermouths (available in rosso, blanco, rosato and extra dry) continue to be favorites as aperitifs and in cocktails, a go-to bartender favorite. In addition to the Asti Spumante style, they also produce dry Prosecco, sparkling rosé and a popular off dry Moscato.  Read less

I agree with the other review, this is a good sparkling white for a reasonable price. It is sweet enough for non-wine drinkers to enjoy.

Sweet and decent for when you're in a pinch. Much better than the cheap brut sparkling wines generally available alongside it.

One of the largest and best producers of Asti, formerly known as Asti Spumante. The secret of buying good Asti is to buy it fresh (from a store with good turnover-since Asti is always nonvintage). Here youll appreciate its sweet, delicate flavors of melon, peach, apple and grapefruit. Perfect with apple tarts and cream. - W.E. MARTINI & ROSSI® Asti is crafted from 100% handpicked Moscato Bianco grapes, grown in Northern Italy. It is ranked D.O.C.G. (denomination of controlled and guaranteed origin), the highest classification granted to Italian wines. Its aroma will lure you in like a siren's song, boasting fruity and floral notes. Sparking on the tongue, the natural sweetness of the grapes comes through with full flavor and wonderful texture. Recommended for after dinner, pairing with cakes and other desserts or sweet fruits. Ideal for a sparkling cocktail. - Winery

Bright and fresh, though sweet and spicy. A wonderful aperitif or dessert wine--low in alcohol (7%), but high in flavor, with hints of ginger, peach, apricot, pear and vanilla notes.
