As more Americans have discovered its extraordinary lusciousness, vivid fruit, soft mousse, and captivating perfume, it is no surprise that the following for Moscato d'Asti has grown dramatically in recent years. As a summer sipper, Moscato is without peer.
Ambrosial with melon and prosciutto (a classic combination), it is also a superb light dessert wine, perfect with melon, pears or strawberries (especially if the fruit has been steeped in Moscato beforehand). Stefano Perrone took over the duties of the family domaine named for his father. A retired champion motocross racer, Stefano's formidable reputation rests squarely on his two Moscatos. His Sourgal is released in late November, and is designed for early consumption.
