THE FINER DETAILS
This is a classic Moscato d’Asti with low alcohol, delicate sweetness and gentle fizz. It is fragrant of apricot, lychees and orange blossom and has juicy fruit flavours. Traditionally served at 8-10oC as an aperitif or with dessert.Download Tasting Notes
2016 was an excellent vintage throughout Piemonte, with good ripeness balanced by lively acid. It was generally dry, with some localised storms late in the season; yields were above average and the harvest was slightly later than normal.
The grapes were hand harvested at the end of August and into September. A slow fermentation at low temperatures promotes vibrant fruit flavours and delicate aromas. The ferment is arrested at 5% alc/vol, retaining a level of natural sweetness, and the light fizz - called frizzante in Italian - is added via Martinotti method in pressurised tank.
