Piedmont, Italy

La Caudrina Moscato d'Asti is a beautiful expression of the Moscato grape from Asti in Piedmont. According to importer Oliver McCrum, "a good Moscato is pure pleasure, the exuberant Muscat aromas and flavors balanced by bubbles and a hint of citrus." Romano Dogliotti is the owner of La Caudrina, and he was one of the first small growers to bottle his own wine, many years ago. Now he and his sons produce one of the very best examples of Moscato d'Asti.

La Caudrina Moscato d'Asti is made by putting the juice of their normally ripe Moscato grapes in a special reinforced 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. All of the carbon dioxide from the fermentation is absorbed into the wine, making it naturally bubbly ('frizzante,' or half-sparkling).

This bubbly sweetness makes La Caudrina Moscato d'Asti the perfect accompaniment to fruit desserts, as well as the classic Torta di Nocciole (hazelnut cake, a very typical dessert in Piedmont). It is also an excellent cold, refreshing glass of wine on a hot summer afternoon.

Great wine!, 28th Dec 2017

Reviewer: Lynne Anderson

I had this delicious wine at a company dinner and knew that I had to order some as I could only have a taste at the dinner due to I had to drive later. I ordered it on a Monday and it arrived on Friday - initially I ordered it to have for New Year's, but splurged and opened on on Christmas Day. I will most likely be ordering more. Thank you!
