My Favorite Wine...

 
Cupcake Moscato D'Asti
> $15.00
 
Appellation: Italy
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes:“Our Moscato is vibrant and expressive with floral notes that dominate with hints of peach and flavors of tropical fruits and lychee. It is a soft and luscious wine with just a hint of effervescence to tickle the palate and balance the sweetness. With bright fruit flavors and finesse, it’s reminiscent of a pineapple right-side up cupcake.”
Food Pairing Recommendations:Enjoy with mascarpone cheese or with any dessert such as fresh berries and cream or vanilla bean poached pears.
Winemaking Notes:The grapes were gently pressed and the juice was clarified immediately to maintain the aromatic characteristics of the grapes. The juice was then cool-fermented in stainless steel tanks until it reached its optimum flavor profiles.
