Paolo Saracco 2022 Moscato d'Asti, Piedmont
It is a lightly sparkling, aromatic wine with aromas of peaches, apricots, honeysuckle, orange blossoms and lemon zest. It is complex, with good body, possessing a perfect balance between sweetness and acidity, and a beautiful persistency on the finish.
Moscato is primarily considered a dessert wine, pairing wonderfully with strawberries and stone fruits, but it also is a great counterpoint to spicy foods of all cuisines. At around 6% alcohol, it goes down easy and is an excellent accompaniment to brunch dishes, a terrific aperitif before dinner and of course a fantastic way to finish a meal.
