For your dessert a good wine : Moscato d'Asti Agricola Marrone
The Moscato d’Asti Docg is the dessert wine. Its color is straw yellow and in the bouquet, notes of white flowers, peach and apricot can be recognized. At the taste it is pleasantly sweet , refreshing, armonious and not fulsome at all. It is the festive wine to be enjoyed with friends. The Agricola Gianpiero Marrone believes in this wine as more often than not it represents for many the first approach to the enologic world. Franco Piccinelli, writer and journalist describes it as follows:
“It is the prince if white dessert wines and it preserves the bouquet and taste of the golden grape bunches which in Piedmont express themselves at their best. It was often reproduced but never matched. It is a must when enjoying a dessert and it is so low in alcohol content that it can be also enjoyed by young people. Traditionally, in country houses, it was served to guests at snack time together with focaccia and wafers.
