Wine of the Week: Moxxe spumante brut 2016, Masi

“What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I’ll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That’s a pretty good idea. I’ll give you the moon, Mary.” 

Valentine’s Day has arrived once again leaving men across the World scratching their heads as to how to be original and romantic.

And while giving her the moon might sound quite impractical, giving her an experience of NASA certainly isn’t.

Not NASA as in  National Aeronautics and Space Administration, of course, but NASA as in Natural Appassimento Super Assisted, the innovative assisted natural Appassimento system created by Masi at the Gargagnago drying lofts.

Moxxé is the first sparkling wine to be made with a touch of appassimento (grape drying).

Through the ability to control parameters such as temperature, humidity, ventilation, and weight variations, this system ensures ideal Appassimento conditions for the grapes, avoiding the risk of mould and recreating the climatic conditions of the past that are known to have applied in the best vintages.

Attractive and subtle, sparkling and lively too, this is a unique way to start the most romantic Valentine’s dinner ever.

Bright straw yellow colour, fine and long-lasting perlage. Hints of apples and citrus fruit on the nose. Soft and attractive palate with ripe fruit flavours. Dry and very clean on the finish. Excellent aperitif. Good with fresh, light summer antipasti, vegetable crudités, fish and salads
