Luccio’s Mascato d’Asti
Luccio is the brand, Mascato is a type of grape that grows in cool climates and Asti is the northwestern region in Italy where these grapes grow. This is supposedly a prized wine by Italian connoisseurs. It is golden coloured bubbly wine and is best served chilled. It is sweet with a nice fruity taste. The fruity taste is from apricots, figs and honey. I confess, I can’t really make out all these tastes, the wine just tastes good to me. It is a good desert wine and can go with any fruity deserts or can work as a desert by itself. With an alcohol content of only 5.5% it is one of the best sweet wines out there.
