Moscato d'Asti DOCG 2010 - I Tre Poggi

December 30, 2011

It is quite right in this period of celebrations to enjoy the Moscato d’Asti DOCG. 2010 from the farm I Tre Poggi, on the beautiful hills around Asti, very close to Canelli.

It is a sweet effervescent white wine, esclusively produced with biological grapes, it has to be consumed when young and within one year and a half after its production.

Pale yellow in colour with shiny golden reflections, it presents that typical sweet taste of the Moscato but aromatic and rightly alcoholic (5.5 degrees) at the same time.

Its perlage (effervescence) is fine and with a good persistence, allowing bubbles to properly clean the mouth.

We can combine it with all kind of desserts (fresh and dry pastries) such as a zuppa inglese (trifle) or a soft hazelnut cake but, if you dare to try, taste it with cold cuts (perfect with prosciutto crudo) and middle aged cheese.

Serve it at a cold temperature (6-8 deegrees) in the right glass, called “flute“, in order not to generate too much foam and  keep the right effervescence.
