Pairings with Asti Spumante d.o.c.g.

The sweet taste of a food usually tends to prevail, especially in case of desserts. Since there are no dry wines that can stand comparison with the character of a sweet dessert, we suggest to accommodate the sugar content of the dish and match with a sweet wine. Therefore it should be a mistake to combine pastries and cakes with a dry brut classic method. Much better choice to combine a Asti DOCG, Moscato d’Asti, Malvasia di Castelnuovo Don Bosco or Brachetto. But we can hazard: starters made with hard cheese or goat cheese, salami with strong taste, oysters and ethnic food.
