Marcarini Moscato D’Asti 2018
6 BOTTLE BUY. Fine Italian aromatic Moscato
If you should visit La Morra, there are two locations you shouldn’t miss, both perched on the top of this Langhe hill. One is the stunning view from the top of the town with sweeping views of Barolo DOCG, and the other, on the main square, is the Marcarini winery that dates back to the 1700’s. Luisa Marcarini and Manuel Marchetti have been in charge of Luisa’s family winery since 1990, with Luisa orchestrating the wines with consultant oenologist Armando Cordero and Manuel in charge of marketing. The Marcarini’s were the first in the area to designate a single vineyard on their label (1958 Brunate) and their 150 year old Boschi di Berri Dolcetto vineyard is the oldest in Italy, having survived phylloxera and maintained indigenous rootstock. The Marcarini style is poised between classic and modern, history and hi tech and the wines are characterised by a voluptuous, embracing style that complements the region’s traditional austerity and blockbuster structure.
Made from Moscato Bianco from a century old property at Sergentin in the commune of Neviglie. Low in alcohol (5.5%) with the varieties natural sweetness retained,the wine foams when poured to remain frizzante on the palate with a refreshing grapey finish. Great with creamy desserts, fruit, pastries and at breakfast!
Enjoy this wonderful tasting note from the winery! “The wine has a brilliant straw-yellow color with soft green reflections. A delicate white froth evolves into a very fine and persistent perlage. Its full nose is aromatic, floral and fruity as well as intense and persistent. The taste, pleasantly sweet and fresh due to the low alcohol content and correct acidity, is smooth and rich with musky sensations typical of the Moscato grape: the wine’s aromatic persistence is very long and intense. The dessert wine par excellence, it pairs well with fresh pastries and cakes, the classic panettone, all kinds of baked desserts and fruit. To better appreciate the wine’s extraordinary bouquet, it should be served in a classic crystal glass at a temperature of around 10°C. Moscato is considered to be the wine of happiness and friendship.”
