“A sparkler made from the Moscato grape, so there is some sweetness in the wine, but the alcohol level sits at just 7% ABV. For a brilliant cheap and fuss-free party fizz, pour a bottle of this into a jug and squeeze in the juice of four limes. Refreshing and low cal!”
The moscato bianco grape (also known as Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains) has long been found in the Piedmont and along with Nebbiolo may be one of the oldest grapes in the region. However, the production of sparkling Asti from Moscato Bianco is a relatively recent product.
The official Asti and Cuneo zone stretches beyond the limits of the Asti province, to both east and west, nudging in the Cuneo and Alessandria provinces respectively, its western limit is the village of Serralunga D'Alba, although few Moscato vines are planted there. The area is quite hilly and the sloping vineyards create many different mesoclimates and exposures.
