Moscato White with New Sweet Red Offers Wine Lovers a Classic Gift Pairing

Moscato d’Asti and other sweet wines have experienced tremendous growth since consumers started embracing Moscato as the “hot” new grape variety. Moscato is now the 3rd largest white grape variety by volume with sales growth of 60% in the past year. Premium Moscato d’Asti wines are the quality choice for Moscato lovers who prefer sweeter, lower alcohol wines with a sparkling profile.

The Moscato movement has evolved to consumers now seeking a red Moscato alternative. The sweet red wine category is the only segment outpacing Moscato sales in the past year. For red wine lovers who want to stay on trend, Ricossa offers Casorzo DOC, a sweet, light red with natural carbonation. Whether classic white Moscato or the new Casorzo DOC red style, Ricossa wines embody the lively spirit which has made Moscato wines the stylish choice for entertaining – and a perfect holiday gift choice for discerning consumers.
