La Caudrina Moscato d’Asti
There are two ways to drink Moscato d’Asti. Its bubbly sweetness makes it the perfect accompaniment to a number of fruit desserts, as well as the classic Torta di Nocciole hazelnut cake, a very typical dessert in Piedmont.
It is also an excellent cold glass of wine on a hot summer afternoon. Most dessert wines are relatively high in alcohol (Sauternes, for example, or Port), Moscato d’Asti is much less so.
