What is Moscato Wine?

What is Moscato Wine?

Moscato wine originates in Italy and is popular due to its light-bodied, sweet flavour and low alcohol content. With an ABV that ranges from 5-11%, it's the perfect wine to pair with dessert or to enjoy as a stand-alone drink, as it won't overwhelm your palate. 


The Muscat grape from which it takes its name is one of the oldest species in the world and has been used by many different winemakers across the globe, from estates in Italy to the vineyards of California. This means that the tasting notes of Moscato will vary depending on the region and the distillation process

How to Choose a Moscato Wine in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Decide Between the Flavour Profiles of Crisp Moscato D’Asti and Complex Pink Moscato
  2. Select a Screw Top for Convenience or a Choose a Cork for Slow Aeration 
  3. Keep Track of Your Alcohol Consumption by Checking the ABV

1. Opt for Crisp Moscato D’Asti for Hints of Nectarine, Peach and Citrus, or Try Pink Moscato for a More Complex Flavour Profile

1. Opt for Crisp Moscato D’Asti for Hints of Nectarine, Peach and Citrus, or Try Pink Moscato for a More Complex Flavour Profile

The type of Moscato that will best suit your taste will depend on if you generally prefer white or rosé wine. Both varieties of Moscato feature rich flavours and light carbonation, but the flavour profile is slightly different for each.


  • Moscato d’Asti: This lightly sparkling white wine is made from the Muscat Blanc grape, so it's the most common variety on the market. While flavours will vary from bottle to bottle, it's generally crisp with base notes of nectarine, peach or citrus.

  • Pink Moscato: This variety is ideal for rosé lovers, as it features a dash of Merlot alongside the Muscat Blanc, resulting in a more intricate flavour profile. As well as the expected fruity flavours of nectarine, peach and citrus, there are also sweeter notes of caramel and vanilla, resulting in a well-rounded and more complex flavour.

If you're in the mood for something fruity, try one of these orange wines.

2. Choose a Corked Bottle That Allows the Wine to Aerate for a More Intense Flavour, or Select a Screw Top for Convenience

2. Choose a Corked Bottle That Allows the Wine to Aerate for a More Intense Flavour, or Select a Screw Top for Convenience

Despite the common misconception that corked wine is higher quality than screw top, each seal type actually serves its own unique function and isn't necessarily indicative of quality. The holes in corks are designed to gradually aerate wine over a long period of time, while a screw top will keep the bottle completely air-tight.


Screw tops are easy to open, as you don't require a corkscrew, and they allow you to re-seal the bottle if you don't finish it all in one sitting. Although cork bottles are a little more difficult to re-seal and will need to be consumed quickly once you have opened them, the gradual aeration provided by a cork adds a more complex and intense flavour to the wine.

Pick up a wine decanter to aerate any bottle with ease!

3. Consider a Lower ABV of Around 5-7% If You’re Looking To Limit Your Consumption

3. Consider a Lower ABV of Around 5-7% If You’re Looking To Limit Your Consumption

Most standard wines have an ABV (alcohol by volume) of around 10-13%, whereas Moscato's ABV tends to be between 5-11%. This lower alcohol percentage is what enhances the sweet and fruity flavours, making it perfect for pairing with desserts. 


For less experienced drinkers or those looking to cut down, a bottle with an ABV of 5-7% will allow you to appreciate the rich flavours without getting too tipsy. If you're a wine lover, though, you may find that a higher ABV enhances the flavours of wine on your palate. If this is the case, you should opt for a Moscato of around 9-11%.

Cut down on your drinking with our recommended alcohol-free wines.
