"Like fresh grapes in a glass"



100% white Moscato

Sandstone with significant presence of limestone and tuff, hills of about 400 m. a.s.l.

Training system and yield
Guyot system, more than 6000 plants per hectare with a grape/wine yield of 75%

The grapes are hand-picked during the first week of September, after a careful analysis of the maturation.

Alcohol content
7% by Vol.

The harvested grapes are immediately soft-pressed and the must (max. yield 75 I. out of 100 kg of grapes) is cooled at ooc and moved to cooling vats, in order to prevent undesired fermentation and preserve the aromas of the grapes. After several months, the production starts based on the market demand. The must is moved to pressurized vats with temperature control, where it is heated at 20°C. The fermentation occurs with the addition of selected yeasts, which turn sugar into alcohol. When it reaches 7% alcohol by vol., the relief valves of the pressurized vats are closed to increase the amount of carbon dioxide, and the fermentation is stopped by cooling down the wine at -3°C to obtain a perfect balance of acidity, sugar and alcohol. Microfiltration sterilizes and stops any residual of yeast: the clear and fresh wine is ready to be bottled.

Tasting Notes
Straw yellow with greenish reflections, white and persistent foam. The taste is pleasant, sweet, fresh and intense, with a note of musk, very typical of Moscato grapes. Serving temperature: 6-8°C, serve in cups. lt is the perfect dessert wine to enjoy with pastries and bakery product.
