Why we love it
Moscato d’Asti is a low alcohol, semi sparkling sweet wine made in Piedmont from Moscato grapes grown in vineyards located in the province of Asti, hence its name, widely known and enjoyed around the world.
With a floral and fruity nose, with notes of orange blossom, pears, golden apples hues, reminiscent of summer, fresh, elegant, not overly sweet, perfectly balanced on the palate this is one of the best Moscato D'Asti, from an award winning, independent winery made from Moscato grapes grown in the Canelli village, a small village within the DOCG appellation, renowned for producing the best examples of the wine.
A good Moscato d’Asti is a wine for many occasions, not just for Christmas even though it pairs perfectly with Panettone and biscuits, non-creamy pastry and fruits, but it also works unexpectedly well with cold cuts and fermented cheeses, a very versatile wine, a wine for everyone.
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!
