Looking for the best Moscato wine brand for your special occasion? Here are my top
five eight Best Moscato Wines that will not break the bank!
Last week I received a frantic text from a guy friend of mine asking for the best moscato wine brands. He was heading to a dinner date at his new girlfriend's house and wanted to take a good bottle of Moscato that would go with just about anything she was cooking.
Though I am nothing near a wine connoisseur, I do know and love Moscato.
And I have tried a whole lot of them. It might have been the easiest question I have ever been asked.
UPDATED: I have had to expand my list of the best
There are two main things to note when choosing the best sweet wine for your occasion:
- How sweet do you want the wine to be?
- How bubbly do you want the wine to be?
Typically Moscato is pretty sweet, though some are much sweeter than others.
You can learn all about Moscato on this post.
Here are my top picks:
Best Moscato Wine Brands
Since the very first sip I took of Bartenura Moscato back in 2008 at
Bartenura is a very light, sweet wine with only 5% alcohol - low for many wines. It is a bit effervescent giving it almost a champagne-like feel... perfect for any little celebration.
Bartenura Moscato pairs best with fruits, desserts, and cheeses - but to be honest, I drink it with just about anything.
When I first discovered this wine I could only find it at Four Winds - a local specialty food and wine store, but I am happy to say that Publix and
Average retail: $12-14
Castello del Poggio Moscato
At the suggestion of some of my amazing readers, I decided to try out a few of the brands in the comments. Castello del Poggio - a delicious Moscato from the Zonin Estate - has snagged the #2 spot. This is very light, refreshing Moscato with 7% alcohol by volume.
Maybe one of the best things about this Moscato besides its flavor is its availability. Castello del Poggio can be found at many grocery stores, liquor stores, and even in select Sam's Clubs. Bonus too - it has a screw-off top, so no need for a corkscrew.
Average Retails: $10-$12
Gemma de Luna Moscato
A new addition to the best
Gemma de Luna Moscato is a full spumante - or fully sparkling - making it great for even the most special occasions. Made with specialty grapes from Peimonte with hints of rose and peach give it the perfect flavor for most any dish pairing.
Gemma de Luna has a 7.5% alcohol by volume and even comes in cute little
Average retail: $12-14
Flip Flop Moscato
Last year I was delighted to try Flip Flop Moscato for the first time. Besides just having great packaging - it has a screw top and not a cork, which is fantastic for toting to the beach - it was a light, refreshing wine that I really enjoyed.
Flip Flop Moscato is great with fish and chicken dishes or for sipping on the beach or poolside. It isnt overly sweet but has a crisp flavor and a sweetness that lingers on your tongue.
Another great thing about Flip Flop wine is the Soles4Souls Program - where a portion of the proceeds from each bottle of wine sold goes to helping provide footwear to those in need. A great wine and giving to charity - its a win-win.
Average Retail: $10-$12
If you are looking for the best cheap
Barefoot Wines have won thousands of awards, and just one sip will show you why. The flavors are always unique and bursting with flavor.
The Barefoot Moscato has much more of a citrus-y taste to me than the other wines on this list. You can also taste the hints of peach and apricot, without it being too overly sweet.
Barefoot Wines was founded by a woman who was supposed to become a doctor, but couldn't resist the "call of the vines." The company has grown from having just four varietals to now 12 still and 5 sparkling wines. Barefoot is now the most awarded wine brand in California under $15.
Average Retail: $9-$12
Middle Sister Moscato
I stumbled across this wine by accident - checking out of a Super Target in Mobile Alabama. The label was so cute I just had to check it out.
Middle Sister wines give every wine its own unique personality. Though I am an only child and a mother of only two daughters, I can certainly assign a personality to every woman I know with the Middle Sister varieties. You can determine "which sister you are" from your taste preferences. Mine, being Moscato made me the "Sweet & Sassy" sister. Here is what my label has to say:
"After a long hard day of being fabulous, I like to relax with a glass of wine. But I don't want it to bite me back. Isn't there enough drama in this world? That's why this wine is my new best wine friend. With a touch of natural sweetness, it's smooth and refreshing and so easy to love. Moscato, always stays as sweet as you are. I'll handle the sassy."
Made with 100% California grapes, the Middle Sister Moscato has a bit higher of an alcohol content - 11% - than the other wines on this list... but then I bet any "middle sister" would probably agree that is a necessary evil.
Average Retail: $9-$12
Fish Eye Moscato
Fish Eye Moscato is a delightfully different Moscato from South Eastern Australia. Fish Eye Moscato is more flat - less bubbly - than the ones I have mentioned in this list.
I discovered this sweet
This "Cardbordeaux" style box wine even has its own tap! Each 3.0L box contains the equivalent of four 750ml bottles or two 1.5L bottles of FishEye Wine.
Cupcake Moscato di Asti is a nice light and fizzy
With hints of flavors of nectarine, honey and peach, Cupcake Moscato is always a crowd favorite. Another bonus to Cupcake Moscato is that it is easy to find in most local grocers and liquor stores.
I am sure there are many many fantastic Moscato wines out there, and I hope someday to try them all.
Moscato is a wine that I have found most everyone likes - even friends who have
Joy Williams says
I want to try the barentura..I've never heard of it before now. The flip flip moscato is definately a favorite of mine as well!
I have tried the Barentura and so far its my favorite you won't go wrong with that one. 🙂
Batenura is my all time favorite wine. You will love it!
Gayle Sandy says
I love Italian wineries fr moscatos.they re light years better than barefoot.
Dom Payet says
One of my favourite dessert wine although I live in an area not far from great moscato wines too. PLease feel free to check this out at: http://wheretorderwine.com.
I totally agree
I love a sweet wine could you tell me 1 of the best sweet wines I love peaches and pineapple...could you recommend 1 I have tried the sangria and I don't like it...
Castello del poggio moscato is very good it's sweet and delicious I'm new to wine drinkin and was very pleased
Jenn Hunter says
This is hands down the best moscsto if you like peach! I first tried it in Santa Barbara, CA. Last month...
#1. Villa Alena Moscato & Peach
I could only find it at Trader Joe's
#2. Villa Jolanda Moscado & Peach
Found that at Whole Foods
Tara S says
Have you tried “Nando Asti” yet or “Asti Spumante”? They’re both amazingly sweet, fruity Moscato’s with delicious peach, mango and other yummy fruit flavors all blended together.
Jennifer Schellhouse says
Try Santero Pineapple Moscato.
One of my favorite moscatos is Villa Elena. I don't normally like "flavored" wines but their peach is heavenly! I buy it at Trader Joe's and Total Wine. Depending on where you are it is available as Villa Yolanda. Distinctive bottle...that's how I found it! ??♀️
Julia Wade says
Bartenura is my favorite Moscato wine of all time. You can find it in Walmart!
Lynnette M Kennedy says
I tried the Bartenura, and it is now my new best friend. It is awesome and can be found at Walmart and Whole foods.
I can't say I'm a huge moscato fan but this is a fab post. I also wasn't a fan of the middle sister wine I had (it was a red) but it goes to show that just because one bottle doesn't hit the spot - another from the same brand might be completely different. Thanks for a well rounded look at Moscato!
Miss Blondie says
So Moscato is my favorite wine, justsoyouknow. And I love Barefoot, the others you listed i haven't tried. But, you know whats a really good one?? YellowTail. Its new, like within the last few months and its soo good! You must try it.
Also try movendo moscato. It is delicious. One of my favorites at a great price.
I just added movendo moscato to my moscato list of 2, the other being bartenura moscato. Movendo is about $7.99 & bartenura $12.99. I want to mention Baron Herzog Jeunesse Black Muscat. When invited I usually bring a muscato & the black muscat, watch them go crazy over the 2. Then dare them to chose.
I'm a huge Moscato lover. Movendo is delicious as well as Villa Jolando. Just bought a bottle of DiCello. Can't wait to try it. Will let you all know.
Judith Jones says
Just discovered Moscato D'asti Brioche wine whilst in Rome , it's fabulous , but can't find it anywhere but Rome to buy ?.
Yellowtail Moscato is AMAZING! It basically tastes like juice tho so it's a little dangerous if you aren't careful lol...I like to use it in mixed drinks b/c it mixes really well with juice and a liquor if you want...for really long days or just special occasions...Yellowtail Moscato, Peach Schnapps, and OJ is an awesome one!
terri hayes says
I agree yellow tail is good, especially the one with little fix.
Moscato is my favorite wine! I never tried some of the others but now I want to try it! Thank you so much!
Mama Violet says
I'll have to look for these on my next run.
I fell in love with saracco moscato d'asti and it is still my favorite mouth party. It's delicious.
Yes! That's my favorite! I just tried Risata Moscato it's excellent as well! The bottle is also beautiful. 🙂
Judy Lemke says
My daughter-in-law introduced us to Risata Moscato at Thanksgiving a few years ago. We loved it and so did others, who are not drinkers of wine or anything else. I think it's the sweetness. I does go great with Turkey. The blue bottle is unique as well as the pink Risata. I'm not fond of the pink Muscato, seems dryer. We fashioned a lamp out of one of the blue Risata bottles and gave her the lamp for Christmas. Recycling at it's best!
Judy & Jerry Lemke
I tried them both and love them! 🙂
Kathy Davis says
Stella moscato d'asti may be even better than Martini and Rossi Asti Spumante.
Carolyn G says
I am hooked the Flip Flop Moscato. It is so delicious. I rarely drink but have a few bottle of this in my wine closet!
I don't think I've tried a moscato before, we usually drink reds. But with the warmer weather coming, it is 80 here today!, I'm looking forward to lighter wines and these sound great. Thanks for the list because I'm keeping it and picking up a bottle or two!
Lee Ann Tedrick says
Maryann.....I prefer reds too, and I found a red moscato called Electra, with a drawing of an angel on the label. It is absolutely FABULOUS!!! It's a California wine. I just can't bring myself to buy any other kind of wine, I like Electra so much. Try it....hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!
I love both the white and red Electra Moscato wines!!! They are fabulous! I feel they almost feel creamy on the tongue, if that's possible.
I actually just tried Moscato for the first time a couple weeks ago, love it. We went through 5 bottles of Barefoot and Cupcake at my bff's bday party. There were about 8 of us drinking. I'm a convert now.
Cupcake is my fave!
Paula @ Frosted Fingers says
The only one of those I've tried is Flip Flop. I do like that one. I like almost any Moscato, though!
Whitney at It's Gravy, Baby! says
I know absolutely nothing about wine, but when we went to the beach last October, I wanted a bottle. I instantly thought of you and grabbed a bottle of Moscato! LOL I am totally serious. Thanks for the list- I'll have to check these out!
TerriAnn @ Cookies and Clogs says
Good to know. Everyone keeps trying to have me sample different wine but I just do not like the flavor of alcohol itself. Maybe one day a Moscato will change that 😛
Hi TerriAnn, I just started drinking wine a few years ago. I was trying to find a good red wine because it's believed to be good for your health in moderation, but I can not take the bold taste. So my friends were determined to help me find a good wine that I liked and would order during our girls nights out instead of a fruity mixed drink. Finally I was hooked on Moscato, but last month I tried Xo Moscato by Giuliana Rancic formerly the host on E News & married to Bill Rancic, the first winner of the Apprentice, and let me tell you I AM HOOKED & sold. They come in these cute little shatterproof glasses stacked on top of each other (only 4) with a lid just in case you're at the beach and want to cover your glass or save some for later and put it back in the frig with the lid on. You have to try this Moscato to see if it could be the one for you. Please let me know what you think!
Rebel Red says
Thanks for spreading the love for Sweet & Sassy. She's one of my favorite sisters. Try our other wines, too - Sweetie Pie is a sweet red and she's great with dessert!
Ohhh that is so good to know! I have been looking for a great sweet red!! I will check it out for sure! Thanks for stopping by!
Ever since I have found you site my DH and I have been trying all different types of Moscato Wines and we are totally are in love!!!!!!
Bill Stokely says
Have you tried SIP Moscato yet? Love the wine and the packaging! They only make wine, Moscato. http://www.sipmoscato.com
I adore Moscato, but I have to say, personally, Barefoot would be NOWHERE near the top of my list. If you like a good Moscato d'Asti, try Beviamo (http://www.beviamowines.com/moscato-d-asti/). Quady Orange Moscato is also spectacular (I find it at World Market). Rex Goliath, which I believe Publix is now carrying, is good also.
Yes that's my all time favorite especially as like a New Year's Eve bubbly wine. I can never remember the name of this moscato to really recommend it but i know that blue bottle anywhere! Delish
I bought a bottle of this wine on Saturday and loved it. It was my first time. I was in the Total beverage store and they were wine tasting. However this particular wine was not the one they were offering. I was browsing for the different types of Moscato D'Asti and came across it. Really I figure I couldn't go wrong so I purchased it. It was oh so delicious. I purchase the one that I tasted and it was even better. Now I have about five top Moscato D'Asti including cupcake, Villa Jolanda, and Barteneur which is number five for me. I like it sweet and sparkling. I also think the best white wine comes from Italy. I would like to find a sweet 5% red wine. Any suggestion?
Cavit so far is my favorite. And then comes Little Black Dress. Followed by Flip-Flop and Barefoot.
This is a great list though. I haven't tried a couple of them.
I live in a town of 2,000 people with only one liquor store so a bottle of Moscato is hard to come by. But there's a bigger city nearby that I plan on hitting 🙂
Carlia Rodriguez says
You all should try Beviamo Moscato and Allegra Moscato. They are both my favorites!
I also love Allegro Moscato .... though, it is difficult to find it where I live. 🙁
My favorite of all time ...... super yummy !!
Is this a moscata di'asti wine? I seem to like the sparkling character of D'Asti . Many, many years ago I use to sip Asti Spumante with ginger ale. So I am happy to find a wine that I can enjoy without diluting it.
I am the same way.I don't like most wines because of the harse alcohol flavor,but I tried Moscato wines and they are really great. Light,sweet and fruity. I really like Middle Sister as well.
Joyce Ann says
I am not much of a wine drinker but had Electra Moscato at a restaurant in Seattle. It was low alcohol and delicious. Not sure how to find local but it can be ordered online. It was nice to order wine with dinner and not feel left out because most wines don't agree with me.
After reading this post I went out and bought a bottle of Bartenura.
I have to say it is now my new favorite. It's delicious. Sweet without being too sweet and a little effervescent. Love it!
Cupcake moscato! Is cheap & sold
In almost every grocery store! & taste
Identical to olive gardens moscato but sweeter!!! It's a must try!
& for an expensive wine which is really hard to find is "G" moscato!!! You will never drink another moscato after
You try it!!! Trust me! I'm a wine lover!! Also love middle sister & barefoot & yellowtails
victoria williams says
Thank you! I have been trying to find a moscato that matches the one at Olive Garden ☆☆☆
Moscato wine from Olive Garden is called ( moscato primo amore ) by puglia, it is Devine! I found it at jungle Jim's in Cincinnati Ohio, $10.99 vs. $34.00 at Olive Garden
I've been trying to find one that tastes as good as Olive Gardens Primo Amore Moscato too. I'm new to wine but I tried it at Olive garden and loved it. I tried cupcake moscato but it tastes awful compared to olive gardens....does anyone know why i think that while everyone else is saying they love it
Lou Ann Koch says
Primo amore moscato
Oh yeah, Cupcake Vineyard Moscato is also very good! Haven't had it in a while.
What is the name of the wine? I am willing to try wines that are 5% to 5.5%. Anything over that number is out of range for me. Barefoot and Yellow tail I did not like at all so I am going to continue with my D'Asti adventure. My God mother gave me a bottle of barefoot, then she tried one of my favorites cupcake D'Asti and now she's loving it. I purchase her a bottle for Easter.
I am also new to the "wine stuff" but my first taste was Castello del Poggio Moscato D'asti....such a fruity enjoyable taste!! I was hooked, I have since tried a few others 🙂 Cupcake is probably my 2nd favorite! I have also since learned that the lower the alcohol % the sweeter the taste 🙂 just thought I would share that, because I had no idea when I started, but this has been a huge help when im deciding on new wines to try 🙂
I am going to have to hunt down Cupcake! You are like the 10th person to tell me that! 🙂
Cupcake Moscato ROCKS!! You MUST try it!
You will love it as I do.
Yes anything higher than 7% you will notice more of an alcohols taste. I stick to the 6% but 5% is definately sweeter
The Best Rose Moscato out there now is Santero Rose moscato also the Regular Santero Moscato is good also
Its all over Upstate Ny and I.love it
Jenny wright says
Huge fan of cupcake moscato ...I love the lingering sweet refreshing taste that overrides my taste buds. Saying look out honey there is a new sweet man in town !CUPCAKE MOSCATO!
Candoni is the best Moscato out there!
Hard to believe no one mentioned it? It is pure gold to the palate
yessssss i love this moscato
Looking for a really really really really really sweet moscato for my girl friend, who doesnt care for wine. She only likes wine so sweet that it is hard for me to call it wine. If it has a "wine-y" taste at all (even if only a slight hint in the finish), she wont like it. She has had some moscatos that she doesnt care for at all, and others that she has liked, but there are many more of the former than the latter.
So can anyone recommend moscato brands that are excessively sweet, with little to no wine-y taste? We've tried cupcake (which she likes) and I've been told to try saracco, but would appreciate any and all suggestions for the sweetest of the sweet wines (for the sweetest of the sweet persons)
Hey! I totally recommend the Bartenura if she liked the Cupcake. It is terrific. I had some really skunky Moscato this weekend - it was terrible. I'd say to stick with Bartenura, Cupcake...or there is one that has a really cool bottle that has like Greek Gods painted on it... it was good too. I cant remember the name of the brand, but the bottle is quite hard to miss. 🙂
Amanda Fleming says
Is the Moscato with the Greek gods on the label better than Cupcake Moscato?
Candoni! I just tried that one a couple days ago. It has kind of slightly dry, fizzy champagne taste. It was different but good. I didn't know it was fizzy; I almost hurt myself with the cork. Haha
Probably Candoni Moscoto D Italia
Try Santero Rose Moscato or Peach Moscato
You can buy it on Line at empirewine.com
The sweetest Moscato I've tried is San Giuseppe, however, since bought it in Brooklyn, can't find it anywhere on Long island, no one ever heard of it, it's a pity, I would buy a case.
Santero Peach Moscato and Peach Vodka
What a Awesome Drink
The New Mimosas Drink
We Bought Them at University Liquor in Albany Today
Since you liked a sweet moscato buy Movendo moscato. It is sweet and priced well.
try the Castello del poggio. It's seriously like light sparkly juice. I LOVE IT
I love Allegro Moscato, found it at World Market. And Verdi Spumante (which isn't a moscato, but has the same moscato sweet flavor)
Ohh, then she has to try Risata D' Asti she will love it ! 😉
I'm a moscato lover! hands down best I have tasted is castello del poggio moscato.Really sweet and sparkly she will love it.
Barefoot red moscoto is my favorite right now. That is a good fruity one for anyone who likes really sweet. Haven't seen a lot of red moscotos on the shelves. Maybe I am looking in the wrong place? Schmitt Söhne is an amazing Reisling wine for people with picky friends... and yourself. I can't imagine anyone not liking it. Great with orange juice and any kind of food. Not super sweet but also doesn't have that alcohol aftertaste. Serve it very cold, even over ice. My "go to" wine. Also comes in bigger bottle size. I promise you and your friends will like it! 🙂
The Villa Jolanda D'Asti Moscata is twins to Moscato cupcake D'Asti. Very refreshing, sweet, sparkling, and does not leave an after effect. $10.00 a bottle and if there is a Trader Joe in you area you can get it for $9 a bottle. Beautiful bottle as well
I don't particularly like the "wine" taste either.
I was at a restaurant at the Biltmore estate in
Arizona and tried Caposaldo Moscato for the first time.
Oh my gosh! I was hooked from the first sip.
It's very light and sweet and comes in a beautiful
Blue bootle. Your friend will love it.
Rostatello white Moscato sold at Publix Grocery in Florida is my favorite** Sweet, orange blossoms,Ann peaches and citrus notes. It stays fizzy, to the end of the bottle.... mine can take weeks to empty as I am not a big drinker! It is 6% alcohol, Italian, from Provincia De Pavia. Distributed by Ruffino . $10 to $12 a bottle. (750 ml)
correction: Rosatello is the brand name not Rostatello as I typed.
Sad public service announcement: after not being able to find this anywhere recently, I was notified that it has been discontinued due to lack of interest. It was my favorite for years.
The Naked Grape Moscato is so yummy! Very fruity and light!
Has anyone tryed the New Santero Peach Moscato ?? Its so Yummy
We Tried Sassy Bitch Moscato from California
it was Very nice
Bought it at Personal wine celler in Glenville Ny
I guess it all depends on personal taste. I accidentally found a Moscato I love. It has a creamy, slightly sweet taste. It has a little bit of fix and I like it better than any I've tried. It is Cavit Moscato. I was a fan of Barefoot's brand, but once I tried this, there was no comparison. It's by far my favorite thus far.
I like but hard to find in my area. For two years I could always find but now only in certain area. You get a lot for your money. Normally, I purchase the big bottle for $13. It's number six on my list.
I have tried the Bartenura. It is very good. Light, sweet and effervescent. What more could you ask for. I also had wine Moscato At Carmines while dining. The name was LaSpinetta Moscato D`Asti. Very similar to the Bartenura. My girlfriend enjoyed them both and she is not a wine drinker.

I Love all the Santero Moscato Wines
has anyone tried Robert Mondavi's Moscato d Oro? it is from a winery in Napa Valley, California. A little pricey, $25 for a 375 ml bottle, but it is so good. Bevmo carries it sometimes but vintage is older. they say moscatos peak within a year to two years, and the winery sells last years(2011) vintage. Bevmo carries 2009 mostly. i havent tried buying from Bevmo though as I am a Moscato d Oro wine club member and they ship it to me for $20 a bottle (80 for 3 bottles including tax and shipping) quarterly.
Sassy Bitch Moscato is so Awesome
It's From California
Ask for it at empirewine.com
They will get it in and Ship it to you
They Also Carry The Santero Rose Moscato
Castello del poggio moscato. They serve it at the Olive Garden. Super sweet, not dry at all and a light delicate fizz!! For me it's the end all of all wines!! 🙂
Moscato'd Asti is my favorite, it's sweet but wonderfully balanced with nice bright acidity and luscious stone and tropical fruit flavors.
You can check for other moscato wines here ->http://www.moscato-wine.com/category/best-moscato-wine/
Santero D Asti is one of my Favorites
This list has definitely helped! I am a fan of Moscato and have tried many different brands!! Do you know where I can find/purchase Jacob's Creek Moscato?
I found it at my local Publix grocery store - they have a great wine selection. 🙂
I've purchased from Trader Joe's.
Happy Holidays to All

Happy Moscato New year
I'll have to try some of the listings on this list -I'm always on the hunt for a good Moscato. I love the Castello del Poggio but have had a hard time finding it. For Christmas I received a bottle of Zonin Moscato Puglia and it's my new favorite - very, very good!
Happy New Year to all may your Moscato dreams come true for 2013
Jaime Ramirez says
Try SIP Moscato! It is the only PREMIUM Moscato on the Market. You won't be disappointed.
Just had Sassy Bitch Moscato from California it is Very Good and not to Sweet
I live in central IL, there is a winery about 10 mins from me and I absolutely love their Moscato! It's called August Hill and if you ever pass through IL, I definetly recommend it they have a tasting room that is amazing and not badly priced 😉
karen coleman says
Have you tried EOS Tears of Dew... it is fantastic, but upon research, i see that BevMo is out of stock.
You mentioned Jacob's Creek Sparkling moscato, but I'm in love with Jacob's Creek classic moscato. It has frizzante bubbles, it's 8% alcohol, it comes in a screw-top, and it's around $5.20.
Try Santero Moscato wines it has all kinds of Flavors also go to empirewine.com
You can find it there
LOVE Verdi Moscato! It ROCKS and when you can find it at WalMart - it is under $6.00!!!! It is one of my fav moscatos!
Jill Doherty says
Is it sweet and friitty and it dry?
I can't believe that Santero Peach moscato is So good Last night while at KingCork liquor in Schenectady Ny I found it there and Bought 3 bottles
My absolute favorite is Chateau d'Yquen, but it is hundreds of dollars.
The best budget with fantastic taste is Santo Mascoto D'Asti which you can buy at Costco for under $12. Well worth the price - An EXCELLENT wine.
Kathy I also tried the Santero Moscato
At empire wine in Albany and also under $12.00
AGREED!!! I love this one. I've been able to find it at Sam's Club, as well.
Also I am a huge fan of BareFoot. Very good for under $8.00.
Just Today I Seen a 3 liter bottle of Santero asti
I'm gonna buy it for the Superbowl
I love Castello del Poggio. It's sold at Olive Garden but I first tasted it on a Carnival cruise ship. Give it a try. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Just wanted to say thank you for this list! I stumbled upon your blog when googling, "What are some good Moscato wines?" and voila, you had answers! 🙂 Checked out other areas of your blog and also subscribed. Keep up the great work!
Has anyone bought the Arione Flavor moscatos yet.?
I tried Seven Daughters Moscato at Macaroni Grill the other night. It was phenomenal!!! The waiter joked that it was "sprite wine" because of the bubbles and sweet taste. And oh my, it really tasted like that!! I wonder if the bartender gives it a dash of sprite... lol. I've been looking for it everywhere, to no avail. I picked up some Barefoot Moscato tonight and although it's not as tasty, it's not bad. Aftertaste is a lil too strong.
Anyone have any suggestions for a super sweet, bubbly Moscato?? (other than #1 in this article, Bartenura... I'm going to Publix in search of this one tomorrow!)
Hey Lorie! After a bunch of commenters here recommended the Cupcake Moscato, I have picked it up a few times and REALLY like it. It is light like the Bartenura as well without the strong aftertaste that Barefoot has 🙂 I will have to check out Seven Daughters!
Try BARTENURA it is not over sweet. Give it a try! I loved it. 🙂
Hi, try RISATA Moscato d' Asti this one is sweet and bubbly. 🙂 it comes in a beautiful blue bottle hope you like it!
I have found it in Michigan at Meijers, and Krogers. I had it at Macaroni Grill also It is wonderful my new favorite so far. A Seven Daughters fan.
I've also had the Seven daughters moscato and it is my absolute FAVORITE at the moment, but I can't find it anywhere, only online. Does anyone know where I can find it in northern NJ?
zeke lynton says
Total Wine has Seven Daughters for like $10.99
Try santero moscato it's available in many flavors also go to empirewine.com and you can have it shipped to your house
Santero flavored Moscatos are
Also The Santero Rose Moscato is Awesome
Need help finding
My two favorite Moscato's are the Risada Moscato d'Asti and the Antica Cantina di Calosso Moscato d'Asti.
I'm going to a Moscato wine tasting at Empire wine today in Albany Ny
I don't know of its been mentioned but its so good I will mention it just in case. You must try Marco Negri moscato di asti. You will not regret it!!!!!!
I was scrolling through and could not believe Marco Negri had not been mentioned! Hands down the BEST moscato I've ever had. I'm glad you agree lol
Can't wait to try Santero Passion Moscato this Thursday at empire wine in Albany
Sara Shuman says
OMG!! Just tried SIP Moscato for the first time and LOVE it!! Editor's Choice in December Wine Enthusiast and Gold Medal winner at the recent SF Chronicle Wine Comp. MUST try!!!!
Just finished 2 bottles of Sassy Bitch Moscato
This is my new favorite
OMG! I just tried Bartenura for the very first time, a few days ago.....I am hooked! I was a Jacob's Creek wino, but I have moved on to the blue bottle!
ANN H. SIMMONS says
My friend and I were at the Opera last month. We wanted some wine and I am a "sweet' wine drinker when I drink. The only sweet wine they had was a white muscadine wine. I think it was a Moscato. It was delicious. I am not sure of the brand name and I could kick myself for not going back and asking the bartender.
Do you have any idea from my poor description what type it could have been . Or could you suggest one for me.
Ann H. Simmons
I would suggest Santero sparkling Moscato
You can go to wespeakwine.com
And see what they have
I love Moscato and have been working at trying different brands. I love Jacobs Creek (regular is a little sparkling) which restaurants are starting to have. Another I was impressed with was Il Conte d'Alba Stella Rosa Imperiale Moscato. It's a bit pricier. And Mirassou Moscato was rather good too. One of my favorites they serve at the Chart House and I found it at Stater Bros is Luccio Moscato. Not as economical as some of the others but very tasty and worth splurging on when they have a sale. I'm the original Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante girl so finding others I like is a joy.
kenny tannins says
Everyone!!! Please try Martini and Rossi Asti. It is so incredible. Cavit Moscato is a close #2.
I have always hated wine,taste like acid. which is crazy since my whole family drinks it. Last week I tryed Jacobs Creek Moscato. And love it. What else is similar ? Thx
OMG how could you forget the biggest and best STELLA ROSA!!!! need to check it out if you are going to be the Moscato Mom. http://www.STELLAROSA.com 😉
I dont think I have even HEARD of Stella Rosa. I will check it out! Thanks!
ahhhh, sadly it is because there are no stores that carry it even remotely close to me in Florida. Bummer.
John & Jen says
Hi Moscato Mom!!
We are converts from "Reisling only" drinkers due to your website and are huge fans of you 🙂 Our go to wine used to be Relax Reisling, but after discovering the sweet taste of moscatos, we havn't gone back.
We've tried most of the moscato wines on both your lists and comments , as well as some random ones from the store and can both agree we LOVE Bartenura. We now use it as a standard to compare other moscatos to.
- Flip Flop/Barefoot was our first moscato - great budget wines for every day drinking.
- Middle sister was not very good at all. It didn't taste like moscato at all, it tasted completley different to us. I'm thinking maybe we got a bad bottle because it was BLAH.
Recently we came across TWO moscatos that may be even BETTER than Bartenura.
1. Castello Del Poggio Moscato D'Asti - http://www.snooth.com/wine/castello-del-poggio-moscato-moscato-dasti-2012/ . This one is found at Olive Garden but may be hard to find in stores. Its sweeter than Bartenura and bubbly. It tastes a bit of a citris/honey taste too it. VERY good.
2. Saracco Moscato d'Asti 2012- http://www.wine.com/v6/Saracco-Moscato-dAsti-2012/wine/121780/detail.aspx - Found this randomly in a store after reading comments about Moscato D'Asti varities- also deliciously sweet very "grapey" taste - almost like a bubbly grape juice!
I think the proof is in the pudding!
Moscato d'Asti wines combines the delicious taste of moscatos with the crisp and refreshing bubbly tastes of champagnes.
I think the d'Asti ones are the way to go!
Lol I also was a Relax Riesling drinker. It was the first wine that enjoyed that wasn't dry and bitter. But now for some reason rieslings give me a headache.
Well said and I totally agree. Absolute delicious and no alcohol taste.
I haven't seen anyone mention Alice White Lexia-Moscato. I used to love it when it was just called Lexia, but now that Moscato is so popular they added that to the name. I've found it all over the country and it is not expensive. Give it a try!
Has anyone tryed Santero flavor Moscatos
They are Awesome.
I really like Gato Negro and Fish Eye. I received Seven Sisters and Middle Sister as gifts yesterday. I hadn't tried either yet. I love going into Meijer and walking the wine asle deciding which new wine to try. Sometimes I hit but many many times I've missed. Example I tried a nasty moscato called truck something. It gave me a nice buzz though lol. Oh yeah a really delicious cheap moscato is J.W. Morris at Trader Joe's!
You all need to Try Santero Coconut and Pineapple Moscato
It's like drinking a Pina Colada with Bubbles
Barefoot and FlipFlop moscato is the worst ever. I had excellent moscato at at a wine galley at a resort.
If you by cheap you'llget cheap.
It's a personal choice as with everything else, Faye. I happen to think FlipFlop and Barefoot moscato are great tasting wines. Why not tell us the name of the excellent moscato you had at a wine galley at a resort? If it's so great, share the name with everyone so we can try it, too.
The next time I go to the Resort to listen to live jazz music, I'll find out the name of the Moscoto.
I had try different wines and some I can't stand. I don't like wines that have a lot of acidity/dry wines, so I go more for the sweet or fruity wines. I like couple of German wines... Riesling is my favorite: like Auslese and Beerenauslese. Arbor Mist isn't bad. Like you said , everyone has different taste.
Robert Tidwell says
I had your #1 for the first time about 3 years ago.. The only store I know that sells it (Roger Wilco) is closed for renovations and has been for 6 months
Try Almaden Moscato in the 5-liter box. Ah. May. Zing.
So that blue bottle....The best!!!!!! Bartenura moscato had me hooked 🙂 I went to the store to get a bottle for a girlfriend of mine, since I have been ranting on and on about it and they were all out :(. A lady recommended Banrock station 2011 to me and they were $10/2 (what a price right?!!) went home, chilled it, had it with dinner and it was delish!!!!!
So if u r looking to try a new wine, try it. Still have 2 spare bottles of my favorite blue though 🙂
Yes! I love sweet wines. I am trying to get more and more into wines as I am getting older but I still cant shake my sweet tooth! There is a great place near my house in New Jersey called Shoppers Vineyard (you can order online too!) and they have a nice selection of the sweet stuff!!! http://www.shoppersvineyard.com/store/pc/Top-Sweet-Wines-c645.htm
My favorite moscato is Sutter Home.....red, pink or white....i try alot of moscato wines i dont care 4 the sparklinG 1's. 🙂
My oldest sister brought me a bottle of Middle Sister Moscato as a gift for hosting Thanksgiving. Yes, I am the middle sister but I am not too big on white wines. I Love this Moscato, a must try for any wine drinker!
I am a beginner in the Moscato field..I must say Bartenura so far is the best....but still exploring....Yellow Tail and Barefoot....will try Santero Moscato Coconut flavor...sounds good...:) ,p.s. any other suggestion for for beginners...let me know...thx.
I have been a huge Moscato fan for years. My favorite is Elio Perrone Moscato d’Asti
I am not fond of the Barefoot. I don't think it is sweet or light enough for my taste.
Katie Schimpf says
My Mom and I were very pleased to see our two favorite Moscato brands on your list! Barefoot and Flip-Flop! 🙂 I'm going to try the Jacob's Creek in place of champagne tonight!
Actually Ladies the VERY BEST MOSCATO on the market out there is called "Ruffino Moscato D'Asti", I'ts wondeerful. I'm not a drinker however I will kill a bottle of this. You can evn purchase this at Krogers Martket for only $12.99, at Merjers on sale $12.99. State Store &19.99.
A very smooth sweet wine, if that's what your into.
Cathy Rueda says
I will have to decline on your choices.
Sarraco by far is the best.
Sugar Sandy says
My husband picked up a bottle of the Bartenura Moscato yesterday (at World Market) and we loved it. Thanks for the suggestion.
P.S. This is my first time viewing your site. LOVE IT! Good job!

Peg Newcomer says
My girlfriends and I are huge fans of Moscato and until a recently felt most were delicious. While they are all great we have found the absolute best (for our tastes) is la ardilla. It is made in Spain and has a picture of a squirrel on the label. Unfortunately we have difficulty finding it in Lancaster County,PA
I love Primo Amore Moscato, moscato by cupcake , just tried and sipping now the first one you listed . Taste is wonderful. I did not like the moscato yellowtail, sutter, few others I also tried. Barefoot was ok,,,,love the idea of a little party 4 pack. I think I tend to like the wines from Italy vs California ...I am new to this,,,,I do not like any dry wines....so Moscato for me :). Happy sipping and thanks for the information !!
Have you tried MoscaMango? It is to die for! It has actual mango pulp in it! You need to gently roll the bottle to mix it up, just don't shake it because it's a sparkling wine! I bought it in Minneapolis for about $15. I love, love, love sweet wine and this is truly amazing!
Bartenura Moscato are now sold at Costco.
I love Cupcake Moscato D'Asti and Barefoot Red Moscato. Bella Bolle isn't too bad
I absolutely LOVE Tintero Moscato d’Asti, from Piemonte, Italy, but cannot find it in any stores- have only had it in my favorite fancy restaurant Tony's Steaks and Seafood in Mason, Ohio. I did try a new one tonight-Castello del Poggio Moscato D'Asti and it is a very good sweet dessert wine-maybe a little too sweet though. Love the site!
Gina Maske says
Hi there, I have an excellent Moscato for you to try if you haven't already done so. Moscato's are the only wine that I care for and I am constantly on the look out for new ones. It's
Candoni Moscato D'Italia Sweet White...it's not always easy to find but recently my hubby did find some at Kroger's. Besides tasting amazing, the bottle is just beautiful. If you've not tried it before, I hope you can find it. I know that you will love it!!
(I tried to paste a pic but it wouldn't allow me to do so)
I'm a moscato only girl. The sweeter the better for me. My faves:
#1 Sant'Evasio Moscato d'Asti ($14 for larger bottle) This is the wonderful sparkling wine we had at our wedding.
#2 Sant'Evasio Brachetto D'Acqui ($19) This is a red moscato with slight strawberry flavor. Just discovered and really is a tie between this and my #1.
#3 Seven Daughters Moscato. Had at a restaurant but have been unable to find locally.
#4 Blue Fin Moscato from Trader Joes. If you're just looking for a cheap moscato this is really good for $4.50. I have noticed a difference from bottle to bottle though. Sometimes it's a little more acidic.
#5 Cupcake Moscato D'Asti
#6 Annalisa Moscato Vino Spumante
Looking forward to trying some of these other recommendations!
Bartenura is wonderful as well as Castello del Poggio, Mia Dolcea, Estancia, Marchesi di Barolo Zagara, and Ecco Domani. Salud!
Has anyone tried funf 5 moscato by Schmidtt Sohne?
I have probably tried every Moscato out there! I am very picky about my Moscoto....My two favorites are tied for first....Cupcake Moscoto and the one from Olive Garden called Castello del Poggio Moscato d'Asti. They are both really reasonable in price. Tied for my second choices are Bartenura Moscato and I believe it is called Turning Leaf Moscato.
HEB groceries in Texas sells the best Moscato i've ever had (very sweet) named Prima Mazzo Moscato D'Asti.
Villa Alena Moscato d'Asti, which is sold exclusively at Trader Joe's is heavenly! Lower alcohol makes this an easy drink and only $8.99 a bottle. This my favorite so far.
Total awesome wine. I love it but can only get it at Traders Joe for a low price.
sounds like there are some great moscatos out there.Have enjoyed reading the different posts. one of my favorite Moscatos that I have tried recently is by primo amore absolutely wonderful around 10 or 11 dollars beats Olive garden's price of$25. Found at world Mart.
I work at the local liquor store and I get a ton of requests for pink moscato. My favorite would have to be Miss Prissy by Duck Commander
By far, the best Moscato is Stella Rosa Black. Truthfully, any of the Stella Rosa family is awesome. But my fav is the black.
Hey! I love Moscato wine. Particularly Moscato Di Asti. It's light, bubbly, and perfect. 🙂
Bartenura Moscato is delish!!! I always bring a bottle to any gathering. It's the first bottle empty!
Hi! Has anyone tried Lost Angel Moscato? I had a glass at a restaurant the other night. It was delicious! My top two though are definitely Cupcake and Castello del Poggio.
Leslie DeWald says
I love Moscato Wine, but my all time favorite is Candoni brand Moscato. It is sweet, with a fruity flavor, and goes well with just about anything!
My favorite moscato is Primo Amora. It's a really light moscato with a sweet taste. It's not harsh at all. It has a white label with a silver snow flake. I don't care too much for the barefoot because it has more of a wine like after taste that I don't really like. My second favorite would be Moscato D'Asti, from Belle Bolle. I drink this one most often, it's $8.99 for a regular size, you can get a walmart, and $15.99 for a bottle almost double in size. Which is usually what I buy 🙂 It tastes just like the Primo Amora but it's not a sparkling one. Both are very crisp and fresh and have a sweet taste.
Donna Sanderson says
My husband and I were on vacation a week ago in Clearwater Beach, Fla. and received a free bottle of Seven Daughters Moscato with dinner. It was delicious. we drank the whole bottle! Looking for it around here!
Everyone needs to try Sip Moscato if you haven't tried it yet... It's the only premium moscato on the market.. The wine is absolutely delicious and the package Is very classy and hip.
Drinking some Barefoot now. And yes, I'm a guy and like wine. Ladies, I'm taken... Lol.
Beringer has a pink, red and white moscato that are great! 11.5% and about $5 a bottle.
I also recently found a Canyon Oaks Pink Moscato that's 10% and $6 a bottle!
Great artical. I'm sipping on some Fliflop right now. It's delicious. My fiance bought two bottles for us. One of my newer favorites is Palm Cove. It's out of Australia, and it is absolutely the most delicious Moscato I have ever tasted besides this Flipflop I'm sipping. Thanks so much for this artical and list.
I've been trying to like moscato but I must have tastebuds that are overly reactive to sweet- I've tried the middle sister and too mellow flat sweet - heavy, cupcake, yellow tail- syrupy sweet too heavy. I would like to find light, crisp, sweet but not like m drinking syrup heavy moscato. Any recommendations? I liked the barefoot of all that you listed mentioned because it wasn't syrupy
Moscato Mom says
I would look for the Bartenura. It is not syrupy-sweet. Very crisp and more bubbly than the others 🙂
I found two very delish moscatos- primo amore and villa Alena moscato d'asti- so crisp , light, bubbly and semi sweet!
Most of the comments are from women. But it seems men are liking this moscato, also. My son prefers it (30 yo) also.
The 1st time for me, was at a Greek restaurant, Santorinis, in NJ, a few years ago. It was pricey there, but not in the stores. I never heard about it before, so it must be a new wine.
I went looking for it, and tried Sutter's Home and Barefoot. I'd prefer Sutter's ( grapefruity) , while the later is too sweet.
Interesting I have not heard. The name Flat 120 red moscato, it is made in Austrailia and retails for$ 12.99 here in Canada .I like it more than barefoot , it's a sweet flavor , 4.4 a must try 🙂
Am not familiar with a lot of what's on the list above cause I term to stick to wat I kw n love whn it comes to wine....and BAREFOOT is wat I love. It is amazingly delicious...haven't said that ima give couple of them a try like the yellow tral tat every1 is talk abt &...Bartenura
EWWWWWW Barefoot is disgusting! It tastes like flavored cat piss, pardon my language. BLECH.
Castello del Poggio is an excellent choice if you're on a bit of a budget. If you like apple cider, 2 Fly is good as well. It's dirt-cheap, and tastes like, well, apple cider.
Primma mazzo gold edition is the best that I have ever had.
Beringer is my go-to Moscato. Light and crisp, not overly sweet, minimal carbonation. At 11.5% alcohol it's a bit higher than most Moscatos, but I only drink a glass or 2, so I actually prefer the higher alcohol content. It's perfect for having a night in with friends, or just relaxing with a glass of wine after a long day. I do like Barefoot and FlipFlop too.
Please try Luccio Moscato D'asti. I buy it at same Club for $9 a bottle. You won't be dissapointed. After reading this, Next on my list to try will be the Bartenura which is also sold at Sams Club
FYI. If you have not tried Primo Amore Moscato give it a try. I promise if you like Bartenura, you will love this.
Almaden Moscato all the way. Look for the gold box (yes, I said box). Cheap as all get out and pure heaven.
I really love http://www.vietti.com/en/wines/moscato-dasti/moscato-dasti-cascinetta-2013/
Inexpensive, light and delicious.
Stones throw moscato. Is really good. Goes good with everything, you can never go wrong! It is produced by stone's throw winery in bailey harbor Wisconsin.
I am a beginner to wine. I have found that I love Moscoto. But it has to be very sweet. I do not like barefoot moscato or flip flop moscato. My two favorites right now are Myx Moscato (Blue cap) but this is very hard to find. My second favorite is Cupcake Moscato D'Asti.
Tonight I picked up a bottle of Risata Moscato D'Asti. I am hoping I'll like it. I love sparking, very swmoscato wines. Can anyone please recommend some more brands of Moscato that I might like given the information that I have gave?
Moscato Mom says
Definitely try the Bartenura - it is very "fizzy" and sweet - and lighter than the Barefoot 🙂 There are also tons of great ideas here in the comments! Thanks for stopping by!
Castello del poggio Moscato d'Asti is also awesome. Bartenura as been my fave for a long while though
Where can I find Bartenura moscato?
Most supermarkets and liquor store would carry it. What state are you in?
Amber Penley says
I live in South Carolina but I work in North Carolina so I can buy it either place. Is there any super markets that sell it th or does Walmart sell it?
I have seen it in Walmart before so u can try there for sure. Im in Chicago and we have a couple of supermarket chains here, most of them do carry it so just check your local supermarket chain as well
Amber Penley says
Thank you so much! I will try Walmart.
I have not tried any of the wines listed, but I plan to. My favorite wine is Moscato wines and here are my three favorite;
Moscato Primo Amore, Moscato Provincia Di Pavia Castello del Poggio, Rista Moscato D' Asti.
Bartenura has been my absolute favorite moscato since I tried it, but it is harder to find. I tried Castello del Poggio and that is now my second favorite. It isn't as sweet as Bartenura, so that's a plus for me. I'm going to try Cupcake moscato tonight and I hope it's as good as everyone says.
Shaunna Hanel says
The absolute best one to me is Allegro Moscato. It has a nice light-body taste but a richness in flavor. It is super sweet so it can stand up to any dessert or is good on its own. It is a little pricier but I love the bottle and I love the pink.
I drank my first bottle of wine last night! (Shared with hubby) Before last night, my wine choices were sips of tastings and rarely impressed. I'm a margarita girl! But this margarita girl counted the calories in the mix and tequila and was reminded why I was never loosing weight! So, I found this blog as a starting point, as moscito is the closest wine I have come to satasfying flavor like a margarita! So glad I found this blog! Tonight I am trying Barefoot Moscato. Last night was Ménage a trois Moscato and it was really good! 11% and fruity! Defenatly could taste the peaches!
My 3 favorite are VIETTI CASCINETTA MOSCATO D'ASTI, SARACCO MOSCATO D'ASTI, and Castello di Amorosa MOSCATO, "Il Raggio del Sole",
I must say though all of the wines under the "sweet wines" for Castello di Amorosa, are DELISH!!
The best CA producer of Moscato wines is Quady Winery, small family owned winery near Fresno. They make premium wines such as Electra and Red Electra that are SO much better than the ones on your list. Give them a try and I guarantee these become your new favorites.
Hi I was wondering if you could help me out to. I'm not a big drinker anymore like I was when I was younger hell I don't even drink at all but I want to try wine every time I get a bottle there's to much alcohol in it and I like stuff that's fruity so I want less alcohol and more taste can u help me find one. Ty
Bartenura Moscato is only 5% alcohol and very seeet. One of my favorites and you barely will get a buzz with it.
I'm rally surprised no one mentioned my all time favorite - the Villa Rosa Moscato d'Asti. It has a sweet, fruity flavor, is light on 'alcohol flavor' and serves well chilled or at room temperature. Definitely one I keep in stock all the time.
Wendy Woodford says
I don't usually drink wine (bourbon drinker) but I recently tried Trentham Estates Piccolo 2015 Pink Moscato. It's not sickly sweet at all, has a slight fizz to the palate, flavours of strawberry and Turkish delight a blissfully elegant wine.
My new go to drink!
I only like sweet wine, and most particularly, I only drink Moscato. After trying several different brands, I've settled on Elmo Pio Moscato. It is a sweet, Italian import, with the tiniest bit of frizzante. It is not corked, but rather has a screw cap. The 1.5L usually runs about $20, with the 350ML about $10, so it's pretty affordable. I think it's great with dinner - it's a light, fresh-tasting wine to enjoy throughout the year, but especially during the summer months.
Kim O says
I love barefoot brands. I love wine too. going to bookmark this in case i need a bottle for an occasion.
Wendy Pesce says
I really like moscata wine- looks like I have a few more brands to try! thanks
I happened upon a new moscato at a fund raiser and I'm in love with it! But I cannot locate it ANYwhere close to where I live! It's Caposaldo Moscato IGT. Can you help me find it in Central Illinois?
Kirstin Reeder says
I've tried Barefoot and Middle Sister and didn't like them nearly as well as Gallo Family. Oh man. Yum yum yum. You should try to find it!
I ate at Bern’s Steakhouse and had the most amazing glass of moscato d’ asti it was La Spinetta single vineyard. It is sweet (love that) not to easy to find but I did at Total Wine! Also like Bartenura and Risatta.
The best Moscato I've ever tasted in my experience with this wine is the "Moscato di Volpara" of Monterosso Cellars in Italy (Oltrepo' Pavese).
It is a sweet muscat that contains very little alcohol, only 4 degrees!
The color, the taste and the scent of this wine are absolutely unique and I could not find them in any other Moscato of the same type.
If you happen to come to Italy I suggest you go and taste it! You can not do without it anymore!!!!!
Paul sell says
I am looking for Seven Sisters Moscato from South Africa, any help
nick zachetti says
I tried one a few months ago and it was sensational.
Called Steeple Jack Moscato.
From Australia. It is available here and there.
Sweetness was very good and exceptionally smooth.
Judy Bailey says
Gina wine is a favorite - from Italy. So far I can only find it at BevMo. Give it a try!
Have you tried Umberto Fiore Muscat’o di Asti? This is my fave. Sometimes I have to go with the Costello Muscato Pogio when I can’t find the Umberto Fiore. Thanks for a couple new moscatos for me to try.
Try Luccio Mascato!
I have only been drinking Moscato for about three years. I started with spritzers on ice and now drink it on it's own. Now I like the ones that are still sweet but not overly sweet. My favorites are RIVATA Moscato d'Asti & Foris 2018 Moscato.
David Brown says
Wow what a great list of moscato wines, I really want to taste moscato wines.
