Massolino Moscato D'Asti DOC 2016
This not a typical Moscato as it comes from outside the Asti zone. Rather it is drawn from 1.5 hectares of hand-harvested vines rooted in the calcareous soils of Serralunga d'Alba. The result is something altogether more savoury, mineral, complex and yet every bit as delicious as the more common examples. The 2016 is another racy, mineral release bursting with frothy chamomile, sage and tangy red apple aromas and flavours. It's a richer year so there is plenty of juicy sweetness yet it finishes dry, chalky, and super refreshing. Superb with desserts, it is also extremely seductive when served with mature, ripe cheeses.
World Wine – Intensely aromatic, this opens with tantalizing scents of citrus blossom, yellow peach and aromatic herb. The creamy, foaming palate offers apricot, candied tangerine zest, lemon drop and a note of crystallized ginger. Bright acidity and a hint of thyme lift the rich flavours.
