The name Moscato derives from the Greek word “moskhos”, denoting fragrant, sweet grapes, whose smell recalls musk. The color is straw yellow with golden reflections and the perlage is fine and persistent. The flavor is sweet and fruity, typical of Moscato. A myriad of aromas come out brightly from the glass, including sage, orange peel, pear, apricot, honey, roses, and orange blossom.

It’s extremely easy to fall in love with Moscato d’Asti, especially well-made ones like Cantine Povero Moscato d’Asti. Sweet and refreshing at the same time, with great acidity to balance out the residual sugar so it doesn’t feel cloying. Light in body, semi-sparkling (frizzante) and low in alcohol. A fantastic addition to a picnic, aperitif or at the end of a meal. Equally good on its own though!
Cantine Povero Moscato d’Asti is actually a delicate little number for a wine of this style. Aromas of peach, green apple, lemon peel and white flower blossoms give this wine a really attractive nose. This translates to the palate with wonderful tropical notes of pineapple and a slightly bubblegummy vibe going on. Acidity is good and sugar is kept in check, with 5.5% alcohol you won’t fall off of your chair after this one.
An all-round belter for the price.
