Wine Pairing

Recommendation: 2008 Moscato d’Asti ($18)

While pairing wine and strawberries may be quite rare, it can be done. Most importantly, you want a wine featuring some residual sugar and a brightness to match the dishes typically featuring strawberries. A Muscat like Moscato d’Asti contains sweet pineapple and floral notes lifted by the wine’s wonderful acidity and lightness. Available in specialty shops and online.
