Moscato is a low alcohol (5-6%) white wine which is ideal as an aperitif or after dinner/desert wine. My last bottle of the 2004 Marcarini Moscato d'Asti is delicious. It is slightly fizzy and slightly fruity, with favours or pear and lychee, and an uplifting finish. It is ideal with canapes, also a great palate cleanser. The wine is well balanced and it is difficult to stop at one glass, particularly during summer.
