We are fully into the swing of summer now, although it’s not the summer we all thought we would be having with everything going on around the world. We’ve got to make the most of these situations though and now that we are able to spent more time with our loved ones it certainly lightens up the mood.

There’s nothing nicer than a perfectly chilled glass of wine on a hot summers day when you’re enjoying the company of your family and friends. This wine Volo Di Farfalle 2019 | Moscato d’Asti DOCG | Sparkling Moscato in particular is an absolute winner for me as it’s deliciously sweet and refreshing. It’s a medium sweet sparkling white wine with aromas of mountain flowers, wild herbs and yellow apple. It has tiny little bubbles which add a touch of spritz. You can purchase this from Independent Wine for £13.99. They have a wonderful selection of award winning wines to chose from for whatever the occasion.
I’d say it’s an all rounder kind of drink as it goes very well on its own whilst relaxing in the garden or the sofa, as well as serving it along side some n it such as crisps and nuts. I also enjoyed a glass with my roast dinner on Sunday and it went down well with roasted pork and all the trimmings.
Volo Di Farfalle means “flight of the butterfly”– an apt name for this light, sweet and fresh wine. It’s super fruity and I like the fizz from the bubbles, without it going straight to my head like a Prosecco would do. This is 5.5% AVB so it’s similar in alcohol content in comparison to a cider or a beer.
It is made from hand-selected grapes: the best bunches are chosen and hand-picked at the start of September. The fresh juice is then cooled to near-freezing temperatures to stop fermentation. When needed, small portions are de-frosted. The wine is produced in small batches to ensure it always has the most desirable, fresh flavours.
It is an award winning wine and has won one of the most prestigious titles of “Two Glasses” and was included in the 2020 edition of “Italian wine bible” by Gambero Rosso.
