Our selection is more than a lovely, light, and refreshing wine. It's alesson in Italian wine laws. To guarantee the quality, the G in the DOCG, you have to limit quantity. But, too often, Mother Nature doesn't go along, and that's when things get a little complicated.
This wine is made in the commune of Asti, which is part of Piedmont, and home to one of its most famous wine, Moscato d'Asti. They also make a red version, Brachetto, and a ros?, which is a blend of the two.By law, they can only make so many gallons of wine off their vineyard. If you make more, you can't call it any of those names. You can't even say it comes from Asti. But, you can charge a lot less for it.
Our selection is just that. It has all the pedigree of the higher-priced model but slips in under the price point. The Moscato and Brachetto of Asti are two of the hottest selling wines in America now. Their slight sparkle, low alcohol, and refreshing sweetness seem to fit everyone's palate.
And that's what we have here. Mosketto is a blend of the words Moscato and Brachetto. Apparently, the laws don't cover that. It's made at Cuvage, the largest winery in Piedmont. Their resources are substantial, which allows them to bring us this lovely offering. It features peach and apricot flavors, citrus notes, and spice to matchanything from crab cakes with tomato aioli or fish and chips.
