This Moscato d'Asti by Pelassa can be enjoyable on its own as an aperitif as well as pairing with light dessert such as éclair. To me, the complexity seems to be the missing piece but for a good sunny day, this will do. Though, the aroma and bouquet, as in Massolino Moscato d'Asti, are not quite there, it still preserves its elegance. This is a wine to be consumed now.
