Moscato d’Asti DOCG Vintage 2020

Wine

Today Moscato grape has found its chosen home in a hilly range of 52 tiny villages running through three provinces in South Piedmont, but the latest scientific research tells us that the moscato was actually the first grape ever cultivated, the progenitor of the entire vinegrowing industry and the mother of all the infinite varieties that have evolved to our days.

Every year this grape is pressed as they used to press it in the seventeenth century.

They use wine-presses with rollers to achieve a smooth pressing, after which the solids, skins and stalks, are separated by means of presses that apply a soft pressure, in order to preserve the full flavour of the grape.

The juice thus obtained is transferred into stainless steel containers and kept cool to prevent fermentation.

There are countless occasion for drinking Moscato d’Asti. It is traditionally a perfect accompaniment when commemorating a special event, for a party or after a good dinner any day of the week because of its low alcoholic content, its fruity and fragrant flavour and a its wonderful musky aroma of the genuine moscato grape.

It goes perfectly with all pastry, cakes or cookies.

Bicchiere dalla virtuosa enologia esecutiva, limpido si rivela Demarie.

La suadenza polposa di pera del Roero Arneis Docg 2014, la cremosa spuma della dolcissima uva del Moscato d’Asti 2014, la visciola di ottima suadenza e di vivida intensità d’aroma.

Vine

Probably originated in Greece, where today is cultivated in Samos, Kefalonia and in the area of Patras, this variety arrived on the Italian territory well before Christ (at least the second century BC).

In Italy it found the preferential area of cultivation in the hills of Piedmont (where it seems to be the most “ancient variety” recorded) and Oltrepò Pavese.

Although limited, spread a little everywhere, for example in the Euganean Hills but also in the south, in Sicily, Puglia and Tuscany.

While in the South and in the islands is generally used to prepare liqueur wines, to the north the Moscato Bianco gives rise to a sparkling or Spumante wine of straw yellow color with golden reflections rare, intense aroma and exquisite flavor, light body and a perfect perlage unsurpassed in his typicality.

The peculiarities of the Moscato Bianco are exalted by the climatic and geological conditions of the production zone.

It has been proved that the best results in terms of aromatic varietal component, acidic and sweetness equilibrium and delicacy are obtained in lime soils, such as those in the hills of Asti and Cuneo, and in environments with a special microclimate of hilly areas.

The vine has medium vigor, consistently good production and medium-early harvest.
