Moscato d’Asti


Wine specs:

Growing location: Neive, Barbaresco wine-growing area, Langhe, Piedmont, Italy.
Cru: “La Punta”
Classification: D.O.C.G. Sweet White
Grape-variety: 100% Moscato
Harvest: the first week of September
Yield: 6 tons/ha
Vinification: moscato is the first variety to be picked here, and the grapes are pressed softly to help extract the aromas from the skins into the free-run juice, which is then separated from the lees by natural settling. The fermentation at a low temperature is interrupted by chilling until the sugars have been partially transformed into alcohol, at around 4.5%. It is then filtered and stabilized, taking special care not to lose the natural CO2 in the wine.
Ageing: after bottling in November, it stays for 15-18 days in the bottle until 20 December, when it becomes one of the first wines to be released on the market.
