Moscato D'asti 2018 0.75L

Aromatic Wine
€ 12.00
- +

Bright straw-green. Very intense aromas and flavors of vanilla, white peach, orange
blossom and lemon verbena. Ripe and luscious but fresh, featuring precise flavors of
fresh citrus, vanilla and cinnamon. Finishes long and honeyed but with noteworthy
floral lift. This is made with grapes grown in two vineyards in Mango (Riforno and
San Donato) and one in Santo Stefano Belbo (Moncucco), both grand cru areas for
Moscato Bianco. The 2017 Moscato d’Asti from Vajra is one of his best in recent
years – and keep in mind that this is almost always a truly superb wine. In fact, as
good as many of the Vajra family’s wines are (such as, for example, many standout
Barolos, a benchmark Freisa, an outstanding Dolcetto and Piedmont’s most famous
if not best Riesling wine), their Moscato d’Asti is almost always, each year, one of the
denomination’s best.
