Disarming Loveliness

MOSCATO FROM Asti, Central Piedmont, is too often filed in the lowest bin of the rack. In reality, its pretty, disarming loveliness is compelling to the cynical adult. Considering its ABV of around 5.5P/C, it has also provided millions of European children their first sapid introduction into the joys of the fermented grape.
