Piccole Gioie (“little joys”) delivers a steady stream of tiny bubbles that form a foamy, creamy appearance and texture. In fact, a frothy cap remains long in the glass and provides a solid platform for aromas of honey, peach blossom, fragrant flower and dried sage.
The best sweet wine for informal sipping on a hot summer day is Piedmont’s Moscato d’Asti, and this version embodies all the stone fruit, floral and musky lavender aromas you should expect; foamy and creamy in the mouth, with a good level of crispness.
There’s added aromatic dimension here thanks to the layer of cut grass and fresh herb that frames the wine’s sweet perfumes. Pair this dessert sparkler with fresh fruit or ice cream cake.
