MOSCATO D’ASTI D.O.C.G.
Il Giaj, Moscato d’Asti D.o.c.g.: the pearl of Piedmont, made from the partially fermented must of Moscato grapes. Where else in the world could you find a dessert wine so fragrant and versati- le, so simple and yet so noble? In the glass the wine is a clear and bright straw-yellow, while a creamy foam of fleeting bubbles accompanies every pour. The bouquet is aromatic and intense, reminiscent of the white flesh of peach, the sprig of sage, chamomile and the scents of spring flowers in bloom. Its taste is delicately sweet but never cloying, and well-balanced by a persistent freshness. Pair it with your favourite cakes and chocolate desserts.
