Why we love it
This is one, if not the best Moscato d'Asti. A great Moscato d'Asti from a fantastic winery. The Moscato d’Asti is a semi sparkling wine made in Piedmont, in the Asti area, with Moscato grapes grown in the province of Asti, hence the name.
Within the Asti province, there is a small village Canelli, where this Moscato comes from, that is renowned for producing the best examples. 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, a low alcohol semi sparkling wine for every occasion.
This Moscato d'Asti is not just a dessert wine that matches perfectly with biscuits, non-creamy pastry and fruits, but it also combines unexpectedly well with fresh cold cuts and fermenting cheeses.
The artisan who made it
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.

I had been thinking about trying this wine for ages and I finally decided to give it a try a few weeks ago and it is one of the best wines I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. My sisters loved it too, so I've already gone and ordered a full case ready for my oldest sister's birthday next week!
