Moscato (Muscat) is a grape variety which grows throughout Italy in various forms. In dessert form it is either passito (sweet wine made of partially dried grapes) or fortified. It is used in the sparkling wines Asti and Moscato d'Asti. The latter is arguably the most well-known moscato based wine from Italy. Moscato d'Asti is a sweet, slightly sparkling (frizzante) wine that tends to have low alcohol content. These wines usually have very floral aromas with peach flavors and enough acidity to balance out the sweetness in the wine.
