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 modest acidity, good balance, good complexity and a finish of fresh apricots.
There is no malolactic fermentation which preserves acidity, varietal fruit character and freshness. The wine is held in stainless steel tanks until bottling.
The grapes are crushed, pressed and naturally clarified. Must is stored, without sulfite, at low temperature in order to naturally prevent fermentation. Before the bottling we add yeast and temperature is increased to 12°-14° C (53-57°F).
Alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel autoclave to preserve natural CO2 from the fermentation. The fermentation is stopped at 5.5% Alc. by reducing again the temperature.
Food Pairing: As aperitif, perfect accompaniment to Pan-Asian cuisine and lobster as well as pastry, fruit based and creamy desserts and blue cheeses.
