Floral, grapey, fresh, refreshing and lightly fizzy. Slightly sweet but with a tangerine like acidity that keeps it clean and dry on the finish. This is almost a thrilling wine to drink. Great to cut through a heavy meal or pairing with fresh fruits. The best match though, is with the Berry’s Creek Riverine Blue cheese made from Buffalo milk. This is nothing like the Australian Moscato styles and every wine lover should be able to taste a Moscato d’Asti like Massolino to see how great it can be.
Founded in 1896, Massolino Winery is based in and around the town of Serralunga, one of the prime sub-zones of the Barolo DOC. The Massolino family’s greatest asset is of course their 23 hectares of (mostly) Serralunga vineyards. Strong improvements have been sought and made over the last 10-15 years and today the wines of Massolino sit comfortably among the finest of the region – they are wines of wonderful purity and elegance.
This Piedmont town is the home of the great Moscato, wonderful Barbera, Dolcetto and of course Nebbiolo.
Better known as Muscat, this is one of the oldest varieties in the world. Used to make Moscato d’Asti & Asti (Spumante) to name but a few.
