About… Moscato.

Moscato is an aromatic wine recognised with the AOC denomination and it is produced in 52 municipalities spread around the provinces of Alesandria, Asti and Cuneo. It can be tasted still or sparkling and its alcohol content is included between 4.5 and 6.5%. Its particular sweetness is due to a partial fermentation of the sugar contained in the grapes.
