Moscato

About Moscato

Technically known as Muscat, it is actually more of a family of varieties than one single grape. Our Moscato Wine Guide provides an insight to the family of approximately 200 varietals within the Muscat umbrella, with Moscato being one of the most recognizable in the world. Across the board, young Moscato wines will have a grapey characteristic along with citrus blossom and peach flavors. Our Moscato Wine Reviews indicate that the Moscato wines can be made in a number of different styles. For example, Moscato d'Asti is a light and effervescent version of Moscato, made from the Moscato Bianco (Muscat Blanc á Petits Grains) grape which is primarily grown in the Piedmont region of northeastern Italy and holds DOCG status. Some Moscato will see barrel aging giving it a much darker color and bring about flavors of honey, raisins and toffee. It is the Moscato wines made in this style that are typically at the top of our Moscato Wine Ratings.
