La Caudrina Moscato d’Asti

The creation of such a simple pleasure is in fact pretty technical winemaking. La Caudrina Moscato d’Asti is made by putting the juice of their ripe, estate-grown Moscato grapes in a special reinforced stainless-steel fermentation vessel, called an ‘autoclave,’ with yeast; the must ferments at low temperature until about half the natural sugar in it is consumed, then the wine is quickly filtered to stop the fermentation.

This means that Moscato has only 5.5% alcohol by volume, and enough residual sweetness to remind you of a very ripe peach (but not nearly as much as you find in other classic dessert wines such as Sauternes). All of the carbon dioxide from the fermentation is retained and absorbed into the wine, making it naturally bubbly (‘frizzante,’ or half-sparkling).
