Staff Pick Notes

This wine is the sensory equivalent of pressing daisy stickers onto your crisp new notebook in early September (circa 1996). Coming from a vineyard called Cascina Fiori, or “Flower Farm House,” the nose on this moscato made me imagine what it would taste like if flowers made honey directly instead of bees. Floral with soft bubbles, this frizzante is as innocent as wine gets. In fact, the Oddero family children, Pietro and and Isabella, told us this wine is suitable for Italian kids. Their grandmother would prepare them after school snacks of toast with marmalade and fresh goat cheese or figs and salami, always with a small glass of Moscato d’Asti. Be your own Italian grandmother this afternoon. Is it snack time yet?
