We began and ended this list with Moscato d’Asti. Of all the sweet sparkling wines, this is a style with a gentle sweetness and certainly one that deserves two spots on GAYOT’s list of the Best Sweet Sparkling wines. But unlike the first Moscato on the list, a slightly obscure wine, this one is one of the easiest sweet sparklers to find in America.

A beautifully fragrant wine, it offers balanced sweetness and low alcohol. Its flavors are delicately sweet. Peach and grapefruit dominate on the palate. On the finish, it is pleasingly fresh for a sweet wine.
