I’ma Sip Moscato

Moscato d'Asti

Moscato is the  popular wine of choice for many Black people, and it is  no coincidence that Moscato is the fastest growing varietal wine in the country.  Sales of  the white wine are up 73% over the past year.  It’s a Italian dessert wine that has become a hit in the hip hop community.  There’s been articles on NPR and The New York Post.  Ebony.com just did a round-up of Moscatos.  Moscatos  are often too sweet for my taste, so I prefer it in a cocktail or topped off with a dry prosecco.  I asked a friend who is a wine consultant at Wine Library to let me know what are the some of the good ones.

“Michele Chiarlo Nivole Moscato is  bit weightier than most moscatos by comparison.

Elio Perrone Sourgal Moscato- This guy is the man when it comes to moscato. Serious stuff.

Saracco Moscato d’Asti- this is a peachy, nectariny delight.”

Update: Clutch Magazine writes a posts based on NPR’s segment about moscato.
