Consorzio Asti, established in 1932, protects and promotes the Italian sparklers from Moscato d’Asti DOCG and Asti Spumante DOCG. These are bubbles used for toasting around the world, and a pride of Italian viticulture and oenology. These sparkling wines come from Moscato Bianco grapes, a variety that grows in the green hills of Piedmont. The wines are slightly sweet and pair well with desserts. Or enjoy them on their own as an aperitivo or digestivo. Read on for details.
