“This wine comes to us from one of the finest producers of sweet Moscato that I know of. The Saracco 2016 Moscato d'Asti is a fresh and cheerful wine that is best consumed young when those aromas are so pure and beautiful. The bouquet is redolent of honey, sweet peach and exotic fruit. In the mouth, the wine is creamy and rich. This vintage strikes me as particularly well put together and articulate.”~ML

"This fragrant dessert wine opens with intense aromas of citrus blossom, white peach and a touch of sage. The elegantly foaming creamy palate offers candied apricot, tangerine zest and ginger. Lively acidity gives it a crisp refreshing finish."-WE
"Saracco Moscato is as sweet and seductive as the hills where it is born and grows; as vibrant and sharp as the mountains that surround and protect the land on the horizon; refreshing and effervescent, like the wind rushing down from the Alps towards their hills. Served cold with its delicate and persistent bubbles, it is like a refreshing shower in summer."-Winemaker's Notes
"The Saracco winery is located in the picturesque village of Castiglione Tinella. Located in the heart of the Piedmont Region called the Langhe, which is famous for great wine and incredible cuisine. For four generations the Saracco family has been dedicated to growing the best Moscato d' Asti in the region.
Grapes were first cultivated in the hills surrounding Castiglione Tinella in the 1600s. Throughout history many different grape varieties were planted but Moscato d' Asti proved to be the perfect grape for this appellation. Luigi Saracco, the great grandfather of Paolo, began growing Moscato grapes in the early 1900s. With each generation the legacy and commitment to quality continues.
Paolo Saracco grew up in the vineyards and, even at an early age, had a desire to make a wine with the family name. Upon completion of his enological studies, Paolo began experimenting not only with new winemaking techniques, but also a more modern vineyard management style. The result has been consistent acclaim from the press, and more importantly, his loyal customers."-Winery Notes
