A light wine made of Vosqueat, Areni and Aligote varieties, at first glance unobtrusive and not very intense, but if you give it a breath of oxygen, it will show you its nobility and brightness in all its glory. The aroma is dominated by notes of sweet ripe melon, apricot and flowers. In the mouth it opens with a pleasant minimalism, making your receptors literally tingle with fresh acidity, which after a few seconds dissolves into a dry, nutty aftertaste. It will be the perfect pairing for fish dishes and seafood.

Drinking sweet sparkling wine in winter is a special bliss, it goes well with many winter dishes and its sweet taste can balance the heavier and more intense flavors of winter cuisine. A honey and sage flavored Italian Asti from the Moscato Bianco variety is perfect. Its flavor is moderately sweet, fruity, in the mouth for a moment you can feel the airiness of whipped cream from foaming bubbles.
