DESCRIPTION
  • This is one of Italy’s finest! Moscato hails from the highly acclaimed Piedmont wine region in the north of Italy. Lightly sweet and floral, this fresh and zesty sparkling wine oozes with flavours of mandarin orange sorbet, passion fruit and candied ginger.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The grapes are selected from small vineyards located in Castiglione Tinella. The vineyards are planted with 4,500 vines per hectare, which are almost 40 years old. Only the best Moscato grapes with extended maturation are used for the Cascinetta. The grapes are crushed, pressed and naturally clarified. Must is kept without sulfites in a cold storage, at low temperature in order to naturally prevent fermentation. Before the bottling, we add yeast and temperature is increased to 12°-14° C. Alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel pressured tanks to preserve natural CO2 from the fermentation. The fermentation is stopped at 5% Alc. by reducing the temperature. There is no malolactic fermentation to preserve acidity, varietal fruit character and freshness.

    TASTING NOTES

    Pale sunshine yellow color and slight frizzante, this Moscato d’Asti has intense aromas of peaches, rose petals and ginger. On the palate, it is delicately sweet and sparkling with balanced acidity, good complexity and a finish of fresh apricots.
