Drink of the Week: La Spinetta “Bricco Quaglia” Moscato d’Asti 2011

There’s perhaps no better time of year to bring out the bubbly than the holiday season, and this year we’ve turned our tastebuds toward the subtly sweet Moscato. We rounded up six stellar offerings in “Merry Moscato” from our current Holiday Issue, and today’s Drink of the Week—La Spinetta’s “Bricco Quaglia” 2011 Moscato—is another favorite. Produced in Italy’s famed Piedmont region by a renowned Moscato maestro, this low-alcohol, food-friendly fizzer is clean and bright with notes of fresh peaches and pears, and a kiss of orange blossom and honeysuckle sweetness on the finish. Pair it with festive brunch feasts, holiday get-togethers and the overall merriment of the season. And for more Moscatos we love, check out our current issue.
