Moscato d’Asti is a semi sparkling wine made in Piedmont, in the Asti area, from Moscato
grapes grown in vineyards located in the province of Asti, hence the name, and this is certainly one of the best, a great Moscato d'Asti from a fantastic, independent winery.
The Moscato grapes
Within the Moscato D’Asti appellation, there is a small village called Canelli renowned for producing the best examples, and the grapes used for this wine come from vineyards located in the village.
L’Armangia’s Moscato d’Asti is characterized by floral and fruity notes, orange blossom, pears, golden apples, pineapple, moss and sage hues, reminiscent of summer, is a low alcohol, semi sparkling wine for every occasion.
This Moscato d'Asti is not just a dessert wine that matches perfectly biscuits, non-creamy pastry and fruits, but it also combines unexpectedly well with fresh cold cuts and fermenting cheeses.
The L’Armangia winery have been making wines in Canelli, Piedmont, from 1850, and today they are amongst the top wineries of the area particularly with regard to growing and producing Barbera d’Asti and Moscato D’Asti. Ignazio, the owner and winemaker, is not your conventional winemaker, he knows his grapes as if they are his own sons and daughters and he knows what they can produce and he firmly believes in the Barbera d’Asti grape, but also grow a variety of other grapes including Albarossa, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and a very small vineyard of Pinot Nero that makes an amazing wine.
