Along with the Biancospino, Bricco Quaglia was the first single-vineyard Moscato wine in Italy. This is a sweet and seductive wine with lush aromas of crisp green apple and honeysuckle. A full and juicy Moscato filled with fruity flavors of pear and peaches and a hint of sweet caramel. This is a deliciously sweet wine, perfect for any occasion.

La Spinetta Moscato D'Asti Bricco Quaglia DOCG 2021

Wine Advocate (90)- "Closed in a screw-cap bottle, the 2021 Moscato d'Asti Bricco Quaglia shows foamy beading and a soft texture with mature peach, preserved lemon, sweet almond paste and soapy flower. The wine delivers soft sweetness that caresses the palate but never feels heavy, thanks to the wine's mild effervescence and its balanced acidity."

La Spinetta Moscato D'Asti Bricco Quaglia DOCG 2017

Vinous Media (92)- "Bright pale yellow. Intense, pure aromas of grapefruit skin, crystallized ginger, aromatic herbs and honey. Juicy, precise and penetrating, with luscious yet taut flavors of lemon thyme, vanilla, ripe citrus and pear accented by honey and maple syrup. Closes luscious, long and very dense. Made with grapes grown in 33- to 38-year-old Moscato Bianco vineyards."

La Spinetta Moscato D'Asti Bricco Quaglia DOCG 2017

Vinous Media (91)- "Vivid straw-yellow. Aromas of apricot, licorice, lime, jasmine and lilac. Dense but fresh, offering open-knit but not at all candied flavors of peach, apricot and sweet spices. Finishes long with repeating notes of white flowers and suggestions of grapey reduction. Made with grapes grown in 41- to 47-year-old Moscato Bianco vineyards."
