Moscato d'Asti DOCG 2010

Italy » Piedmont » Ca Bianca » Moscato d'Asti DOCG 2010

Summary

Terroir: The vineyards are located on the estate’s east-facing slopes that rise to 1000 feet in elevation. Densely planted vines (4,500 plants/ha) are trained by the traditional Guyot system on soil made up of sedimentary marl and clay.

Vinification: The late-harvest fruit is pressed gently and then fermented at cold temperatures in Stainless steel. The fermentation process is stopped by cooling the young wine as soon as the desired alcoholic strength has been reached (about 5%), leaving a pleasant level of residual sugar in the wine.

The fine mousse and yellow straw color gives way to a delicate and intense bouquet, with touches of peaches and sage and hints of citrus fruits. A sweet, clean flavor is enlivened by an appealing citric note.

    "Soft and creamy, with juicy acidity and pure flavors of blood orange, passion fruit and crystallized pineapple, followed by a tangy finish"

    "Sweet pear effervescence. A clean bouquet with a taste reminiscent of a bracing apple juice. A refreshing drink thats light on the alcohol (5%) but big on fruit sugar. A sharp yet thin crest of citrus on the palate just before swallowing."

    "A blend of 100% Brachetto grapes, this feisty red hails from Italy's Piedmont region. Lightly sparkling, a chilled glass of this sweet red is just what the love doctor ordered. Pairs perfectly with chocolate too!"

    "This well-balanced white offers a subtle mix of gingerbread spices, apricot, almond and apple flavors, enlivened by lightly mouthwatering acidity. Spiced finish."

    "Wow. A lovely nose of sage, oleander and honeysuckle peppered with gentle hints of passionfruit rind and lime pith. Very gently frizzante and rich, with pear fruit up front that shows a nice touch of dried citrus spice. The palate is creamy and soft with the acid adding length to the pear, apricot and citrus finish."
