Break The Ice
With light effervescence, low alcohol (5.5%) and a refreshingly sweet-crisp profile, Villa Alena Moscato d’Asti is the perfect bottle to break the ice, open up the taste buds or give the cook something to sip in the kitchen. Made in the preeminent sparkling wine province of Asti, in the heart of Italy’s Piedmont region, from 100% Moscato Bianco grapes, it radiates with fragrant aromas and matching flavors of ripe peaches, apples and apricots. It’s sweet (about a 7 on a 1-10 sweetness-scale), and people just love it, especially at $6.99* for a 750 ml bottle.
