Product Description

GRAPES: Moscato Bianco VINIFICATION AND MATURATION: The Moscato d'Asti juice coming from some of the best vineyards in the heart of the DOCG is selected, graded and the highest quality is destined to become Asti. The juice is stored in stainless steel pressure vessel where the fermentation will take place. The total grape sugar content in the juice will be partly transformed into alcohol and the balance remaining unfermented (approx. 90 g./L.) will impart to the finished product its natural sweetness. COLOR: Straw-yellow with bright gold reflections accompanied by a full and lively foam and a perlage of great finesse. BOUQUET: The typical aromatic tones of the Moscato grapes are fully manifested in the wine's aroma, which is intense and extraordinarily appealing. FLAVOR: Sweet, balanced and not cloying, unusually fresh, richly fruity, superbly balanced and satisfyingly persistent. SERVING TEMPERATURE: To be served fairly cold at a temperature of 6°C. (43° F.). FOOD COMBINATIONS: Fruits (especially in the form of fruit salads), baked sweets, creams, cookies or gelato.

Varietal: Sweet Sparkling Whites

Region: Italy

Region Description:

Makes nearly as much wine as France, but lags behind in their classification system. As a result, Italian wine isn’t taken as seriously as French wine. Most Italian wine is made from native grape varieties that don’t grow well elsewhere, such as Nebbiolo and Sangiovese. The most important regions are Piedmont, where Barolo and Barbaresco dominate, Tuscany, home to Chianti, Montepulciano, and the Super-Tuscans (a collection of relatively new reds), and the Northeastern region, where you’ll find Soave, Valpolicella, and Bardolino. Italy’s soils and climates are varied and ideally suited for viticulture, from the Alpine foothills in the north to the Mediterranean coast in the South. Its hilly landscape provides sun and cooler temperatures, even in the warmest regions. Italy has two categories of fine wines. DOCG, which means regulated and guaranteed place name, refers to a small group of elite wines. DOB wines are those with regulated (but not guaranteed) place names. A lower tier of table wines are grouped into IGT wines, which indicate the location on the label, and ordinary table wines, which carry no geographical indication except, “Italy.”
