Pairing Sweet Moscato Wine

Moscato is a wine made with moscato grapes from Italy that give it that sweet and light bodied taste. It has made a resurgence in the past decade as a kind of candy wine.

It is very sweet with lower quality brands made of sugar soaked fruits while higher brands use less sweet and more natural mixtures.

Generally the wine is paired with sweets, fruits, and light salads. Think of chocolate cake and Moscato, strawberry's and moscato, or light salads mixed with fruits and nuts.

Some have argued you can also use it with Thai and other spicy foods. The sweetness dulls the aftertaste of spicy foods.

Although not ideal for sushi but the mix didn't seem to be right. A dull sushi and a bright wine damaged each other. Just because it is white looking doesn't mean it goes well with fish.

When your having your next birthday party or cake consider serving chilled moscato. Keep it in the ice bucket and serve quickly.
