Moscato d'Asti is a "Denominazione di origine controllata e garantita" sparkling white wine produced mainly in the province of Asti, north-west Italy, and in smaller nearby regions in the provinces of Alessandria and Cuneo. The wine is sweet and low in alcohol, and often enjoyed with dessert. Thus it is considered a dessert wine. It is from the Moscato Bianco grape. A related wine, Asti, is produced in the same area from the same grape.
Moscato d'Asti is the main ingredient of Cocchi Americano.
