The scents are overwhelming and recall musk, flowers and white fruits, while there is no shortage of memories of honey. It is its unmistakable hint of musk responsible for the name of the wine and the grape. A good Moscato d’Asti is much more than a dessert wine and evolves in the bottle, a wine that can be cellared and drunk after a few years.
