The Massolino Moscato D’Asti is what you get when Moscato is given the Rolls Royce treatment. Drawn from hand-harvested grapes, the production is tiny. The result is something altogether more savoury and complex and yet every bit as delicious as the more typical examples. The 2019 is bursting with chamomile, pear, mandarin peel and acacia flower aromas and flavours. It finishes chalky, crisp and long with a hint of sage leaf. Another glass, please!
This is really well done with sliced green-melon and sweet spiced-apple character. It’s lightly sweet and not cloying. Medium to light body. Light bubbles. Beautiful fruit. Bright and focused. Textbook, well made moscato. 92 Points, James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com
