94 pts.Wine Enthusiast: May, 1994
This is the second year in a row this wine has won a World Championship. It is a bubbly rife with the heady, highly grapey pleasures of the Muscat grape and a profusion of invigorating bubbles. A trifle sweet with nice crisp acidity giving it an elegant mouthfeel. Perfect for an aperitif, it tastes like biting into a ripe peach. Low in alcohol and a great value to boot.
90 pts.Wine Enthusiast: June, 1997
Moderately light bodied. Balanced acidity. Green apples, pears, honeysuckle, tropical flavors. Fragrant entry of fresh, tart fruit flavors. Fine acidity balance with a pleasant mouthfeel. Very crisp finish, refreshing and clean with a moderate impression of sweetness.
90 pts.Wine Enthusiast: June, 1996
Medium-bodied. Moderate acidity. Medium fruit. Mild sweetness. Hay, minerals, pears. Vibrant acidity complements fruit superbly in this elegant, flavorful Asti. Features enticing aromas and complex flavors that last into a crisp, elongated finish.

A light, refreshing Asti, this wine’s scents of candied orange peel and pink grapefruit flavors end cleanly. Serve it with fresh fruit and cheese or at brunch with a goat cheese salad.

Ripe apricot and raisin aromas lend complexity to this drier style of Asti — still sweet, but the nutty bitterness in the finish gives a dry impression. A complete Italian dessert.
