Made from 100% Moscato Bianco di Canelli, the most renowned clone in the Moscato family. Part of the restricted elite of DOCG sweet wines, Moscato d’Asti is probably the most popular sweet wine in wine bars and restaurants throughout Italy, thanks to its versatility, lively style and uncomplicated profile. This Moscato d’Asti is fermented at low temperature in stainless steel tanks and is minimally aged before its release.

Tasting Notes

Minimal aging results in a bright yellow color with pale golden hues and a fine perlage. The bouquet is refreshing and delicate with aromas of peach, pear and the textbook citrus blossom, typical of Moscato. Moncalvina is an elegant, slightly sweet and sparkling wine.

Captivating and fun to drink, Moncalvina is recommended with light pastries, Panettone (Italian Christmas cake) or simply on its own.
