Product Description

Sparkling, fruity, creamy, light-body wine.
Grape: Moscato.
Region: Northern Italy> Piedmont> Asti.
Notes: Organic, 35yr old vines.

Pale yellow in color and slightly "frizzante”, this Moscato has intense aromas of peaches, rose petals and ginger. On the palate it is delicately sweet with modest acidity, good balance, creamy texture and a finish of fresh apricots. The history of the Vietti winery traces its roots back to the 19th Century. The family made a name for Vietti's single-vineyard Barolo and Barbera. They also put the native Piedmont varietal Arneis on the wine map. Luca joined the family business as winemaker after working at California's luminaries such as Simi Winery, Opus One and Long Vineyards, and Bordeaux's Mouton- Rothschild. His innovative winemaking utilizes a unique combination of modern and traditional practices.

Food pairing: aperitif, fruit salad, charcuterie, desserts.
