This light, bubbly Moscato is a fantastic wine for sipping instead of or to match with dessert, or even, dare we say it, for an indulgent breakfast in bed! Made from the Muscat grape variety and with naturally low alcohol, a touch of spritz and sweetness, and a particularly juicy, grapey flavour, it’s a fresh, flavourful and unique wine from the north west of Italy, made by the Luca and Elena Vietti.
Vietti is a family who have been making delicious Barolo, Barbera and other mainly red wines for almost 200 years, and also this sweet treat! They are based in Castiglione Falletto which is one of the best parts of Barolo, in Piemonte, northwest Italy. They made the wine news a few years ago after they sold the business and the vineyards to an American entrepreneur and wine lover. It was seen as controversial at the time but in reality meant that Elena and Luca could continue to make even greater wine with outside help in terms of investment into the cellar, land and wines.It’s best drunk when it’s young and fresh. Great on its own with the sweetness giving a deliciously rounded, moreish taste, or match with plainer biscuits, cakes or panettone. 5% ABV.
