Marco Bonfante Moscato d'Asti is a fun, low-alcohol sparkling wine that's sweet, grapey and delicious with all sorts of desserts. An inviting straw yellow colour, the glass is filled with streams of fine and elegant bubbles. It has intense fruity aromas of pear and melon. It's wonderfully sweet and aromatic, but there is a backbone of freshness which means it's never cloying, but remains balanced and refreshing. As well as being fantastic with strawberry tarts, Eton mess and all manner of fruity or baked desserts, it's also great for serving with spicy Asian foods. Would be particularly great as an aperitif with some crispy wontons and sweet chilli sauce.

The must obtained from the soft pressing of the grapes is left in the tank for some hours to rest. After that, the wine gets poured and the temperature lowers until 2°-3°C (35°-37°F) to favour the conservation. The following phase is the fermentation of the must in the tank at temperature controlled (16°-18°C/60°-64°F), until it reaches the required alcoholic content of 5,5%. In this phase the typical “perlage” of Moscato takes shape. It is the result of the overpressure created in the tanks by the CO2, produced from the process of natural fermentation.
