The Italian term for the Muscat blanc à petits grains, a light and lively grape that covers the whole of Italy. Wines from the Moscato are fresh, fragrant, usually a little sweet and will often have a slight frizzante or sparkle. Best known in the Piedmont area of NW Italy where the Moscato d'Asti can be one of the finest patio wines in the world. Very floral on the nose, Moscatos are famous for the peaches, orange zest and stone fruits found within. Wines from the southern reaches of Italy are often more concentrated and sweet.
