Saracco Moscato d'Asti 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Most Moscato d'Astis essentially taste the same, some are just fruitier or sweeter than others. This slightly effervescent, sexy, seductive wine displays gorgeous tropical fruit and floral notes, very good acidity, which makes it taste more lively than many Moscatos, and a light-bodied finish. The wine is a thrill to drink, but it should be consumed as either an aperitif or with fruit desserts over the next six months.

The Saracco winery is located in the picturesque village of Casilglione Tinella. Casiglione Tinella is located uniquely in the heart of the Piedmont Region called the Langhe which is famous for great wine and incredible cuisine; between two of the most well known towns in the Piedmont: Alba and San Stefano Belbo. Grapes were first cultivated in the hills surrounding Castiglione Tinella in the 1600's and though many different grape varieties were planted Moscato proved to be the perfect grape for this appellation. For four generations the Saracco family has been dedicated to growing the best Moscato d' Asti in the region. Read less

Note from tasting: peachy, sparkly ["The Other Piedmont" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 19 May 2012. Not my taste, but of the few Moscatos I've had, this is the best, 4.0 in that respect!]

Have you ever drank a bowl of peaches and pears? Although it may not be physically possible to do so, the Saracco Moscato d’Asti 2011 will give you that sensation. It’s the ultimate brunch (or breakfast) wine. Light, low in alcohol, sweet (but not cloyingly so), and delightfully fizzy Moscato d’Asti is pure refreshment. Hailing from the Asti region of Italy’s Piedmont, where you also find fantastic red wines made from the Barbera grape, drinking the Saracco Moscato d’Asti gives you an idea why the popularity of this grape has exploded all over the world. Now wineries can’t buy Moscato grapes fast enough to turn into wine. But this grape has never been a fad in Asti; wineries like Saracco have been quietly making Moscato and making it delicious. Slice up some of the best seasonal fruit you can find, open a bottle, and enjoy.

Brillante strohgelbe Farbe, aromatisch, fruchtig und erfrischend, feine an Akazienblüten, Aprikosen, Pfirsich und Salbei erinnernde Aromen. Am Gaumen samtig, mit langanhaltendem Abgang.

Farbe: Helles Strohgelb, dezent prickelnd. Bukett: Wundervolle Muscatnote mit viel frischer Frucht. Gaumen: Prickelnde Süsse, Muscataromen, Fruchtaromen. Fazit: Unbeschwerter Genuss als unkonventioneller Apéro oder zum Dessert oder einfachso zwischendurch.

Reintönige, aromatische Muskatfrucht mit blumigen Noten, frisch, sanft perlend, mit vollem Körper, intensivem Aroma, langem Abgang und einer perfekten Ausgewogenheit zwischen Süsse und Säure. Süss aber nicht klebrig, leicht aber nicht belanglos. Eine erfrischende, verführerische Köstlichkeit aus dem Piemont. Moscato vom Allerfeinsten!
