The Finer Details
What does our Somm say?
Dessert wine-lovers rejoice! This Moscato d’Asti delivers not only on refined sweetness and deliciously decadent bubbles, but complex and complementary aromas and flavours that remind me of both spring meadows and luscious summery flowers; honey, orange blossom abound! Elements of lime and almond help this wine retain freshness.
Being a dessert wine, I would recommend most desserts to be great pairings to this wine. However, if we were to be specific, I would suggest any of the following to make fine companions: Italian fruit tart with a custard base, strawberry sponge cake, good quality sorbet and ice cream, and traditional trifle.
Alternatively, if you’d like to balance out the sweetness of this wine, I have really enjoyed it with a creamy brie cheese or some simple crackers with quince paste in the past.
This drink is historically used to magnify celebratory events (weddings, parties etc). We at The Vino Shop think every day can be a celebration with the right mindset, so we hope you enjoy this sparkling Moscato d’Asti D.O.C.G from Cascina Ghercina and feel just a little fancier for it.

Cascina Ghercina Winery was born from the desire of Paolo and Guido Sartirano: to dedicate a selection of wines to the wine lovers passionate for Piedmont wines, who are constantly looking for quality and tradition.
Respect for the territory, the continuous search for excellence, authentic passion: these are the values inherited from their fathers and grandfathers, now combined with technologies that modernity offers.
Cascina Ghercina wines are the offspring of Piedmont and in particular Langhe, historical places suited to vines. The cellar produces wines of the Piedmont wine-making tradition, using the grapes of the vineyards located around the lake Ghercina, in a suitable area situated in Novello, on the border with Barolo village.
Nas-cëtta, dolcetto, barbera, nebbiolo are the main grape varieties from which important wines come to life. The most famous one is of course Barolo, vinified and produced with sensitivity and mastery to satisfy even the most demanding palates.
Cascina Ghercina are honoured to share the historic and cultural importance of their wines and love their wines to be one day on your table, to share the emotion of tradition and the pleasure of good wine.
