Wine Menu Spotlights: Moscato


WineAs we continue to explore the many different wines offered at Basta Pasta, it’s important to also recognize some of the dessert wine options as well as those served most often with dinner. Moscato is one of the more well-known and enjoyed dessert wines and tends to be a favorite among those with a sweet tooth.

So what should you know about Moscato?

Moscato can be found throughout the world. The grape Muscat that is used to create the sweet wine can be found in a number of different regions, most often in California and Italy. Australia also produces the grape to create a unique wine. While other wines focus their flavor on the aging process, Moscato is created to highlight the flavor of the Muscat grape. Because of this, Moscato is known to have a sweeter flavor than most wines, making it the ideal dessert wine.

When it comes to dessert wines, there are five different types to consider: Fortified, sweet red, richly sweet, lightly sweet, and sparkling. While dessert wines can range in taste from sweet to dry, the Moscato can range in flavor profile depending on where the wine was created. This is because different regions produce different grapes, which can make for a unique tasting experience. Moscato can also be consumed during dinner as well as dessert. Sweet wines should be paired with light dishes to help highlight the tastes from each, so try to pair your Moscato with fish and chicken dishes.
