il Francesco Moscato Spumante I.G.P. 2016

Moscato Spumante Brut

On the Lees

Vintage: 2016



An enveloping sparkling wine, in which the typical varietal hints of Moscato are expressed with great intensity. The wine is dry, but it allows good pairings in combinations with various desserts.

The wine has a medium intensity golden color, very fine and very persistent perlage. The aromas recall the classic hints of the variety, the ripe yellow fruit with strong citrus and floral notes. In the mouth it is dry, with good freshness that guarantees easy drinking, accompanied by a medium-high body guaranteed by the presence of yeasts. It is very pleasant drunk alone, but is best expressed in accompaniment to not particularly sweet desserts, or with bitter notes.
