Summer in a glass of liquid gold 2009 Veglio Moscato d’Asti

When I open a sparkling wine there is always a sense of anticipation especially with Moscato since the cork isn’t bound. First whiff was gardenias and white flowers while pouring. Medium gold emerges from the white mousse as it is poured into the glass. A bouquet of white flowers, peaches, apricots and golden delicious apple underpinned by minerality and musty notes on the nose and palate. Citris flavors and fine acidity balances the sweetness. Serve cold with fresh berries, strawberries and hazelnuts, or strawberry tart with almonds.
Moscato d’Asti is one of the most delicate dessert wines- body without being heavy- great balance- served fresh and cold while young, it is divine. A good Moscato d’Asti transports you to its place of origin. The white chalk soils fo the steep Langhe hills in Asti lend great character to the Moscato Bianco.
