Moscato d'Asti's low alcohol makes it a very versatile food companion. It pairs particularly well with almost any type of dessert. A classic Italian pairing is with fresh bread, salami, figs and melon. Moscato d'Asti also tastes wonderful with spicy Asian foods.

Many Moscato grape varieties exist, along with many styles for making wine from this versatile grape. But there is undoubtedly only one benchmark Italian Moscato: Moscato d'Asti DOCG. This sweet wine from the Piedmont region in northwestern Italy is known for its fragrant and aromatic bouquet and low alcohol content, which makes it incredibly pleasant to drink - and widely popular. Ruffino Moscato d'Asti, with its frizzante wine style and balanced acidity, is a versatile companion for lunch or dinner fare. It also is lovely to sip on its own or as a dessert wine.

We source the grapes for this wine from the Roero, Monferrato and Langhe regions in southern Piedmont. The first stage of Moscato production is a traditional white wine process. The second stage uses the Charmat method in which the wine undergoes a secondary fermentation in tanks and is bottled under pressure to produce light, gently sparkling bubbles and to preserve the fresh, fruit characteristics of the Moscato Bianco grapes.

Grape Varieties

100% Moscato Bianco


Ruffino Moscato d'Asti has been produced from grapes grown in highly sought after vineyards located in the Asti DOCG region, primarily in the Roero, Monferrato, and Langhe regions in southern Piedmont.


After harvest took place in mid-September, the grapes were destemmed and gently pressed. In order to preserve the freshness and aromas typical of the Moscato varietal, the wine underwent a fermentation before bottling that transforms a portion of the sugar into alcohol and refined bubbles. The fermentation was then interrupted by lowering the temperature until it reached 32°F (0°C), in order to preserve the natural sweet characteristic of Moscato wine.
