Moscato is Quickly Becoming a Wine Favorite, so What is Moscato?

Moscato is a sweet Italian wine known for its fruity notes. Made from the Muscat grape, this white wine is typically thought of as a dessert wine with a hint of fizz. It’s one of the oldest varieties of wine spanning thousands of years. It has gained popularity mainly in recent years because of its low alcohol content.

What is Moscato made of?

  • All of these kinds of wines come from the Muscat grape and all have a relatively similar flavor profile though they vary in fizziness, color, and dryness.

The different types:

  • Pink Moscato – a delightful variation of the wine, which features white Moscato wine plus a dash of Merlot for good measure as well
    • It features flavorful nuances of rich caramel and vanilla notes, as well as nectarine, peach, and citrus.
    • Pairs well with chicken, ham, or seafood.
  • Asti Spumante – this sparkling version is the Muscat Blanc grape’s answer to champagne.
  • Moscato d’Asti – the most common type of Moscato wine. It’s white, sweet, and slightly sparkling, and this is what you’ll get when you ask for Moscato at most establishments.
  • Red Moscato – made with black and orange Muscat grapes.
    • It features a range of fruity notes from wild cherry to berry and peach.
    • Pairs well with BBQ, soft cheeses, or anything spicy.
  • Dessert Moscato – This oak-aged style is very sweet and associated with wine made from Moscatel grapes, which hails from various regions in the world:
    • France, the US, South America, and more.
    • It also pairs well with other vanilla flavors like shortcakes, caramels, or a shortbread cookie.
