Antico Monastero, Moscato d’Asti DOCG (Piedmont, Italy) 2021

($15):  This wine is bottled summertime.  Spritz balances the healthy amount of residual sugar so it’s not cloying, just refreshing.  And all of 5.5 percent stated alcohol means you can drink it all afternoon by the pool this summer.  Or use it as a zippy and sweet aperitivo.  It would be a good match to offset the fire in spicy dishes as well.
