Intense in rich at the nose, reveals the typical aroma of the Moscato grapes, characterised by fresh fruity notes of melon, pineapple and ripe peach and floral hints of sage and citrus peel.
In the mouth sweetness tend to predominate, although compensated by a good acidity. Unmistakable notes of ripe sweet fruits and a pleasant and lasting sweet aftertaste of honey.
Some loves it chilled out as an aperitif, but the ideal matching for this wine are desserts: cakes, tarts, spoon-desserts and chocolate preparations, need the right acidity, liveliness and sweetness of a sparkling wine. In Italy it usually accompanies Christmas or Easter cakes such as panettone, pandoro or colomba.
