Moscato d’Asti DOCG “Pian Centive”
Grape variety: 100% Moscato.
Harvesting period: The grapes are usually selected between the first and second week in September. It is definitely our best Moscato vineyard.
Tasting notes: pale straw yellow colour. The intense bouquet is typically aromatic, conveying sensations of Golden Delicious apples, pineapple and honey- Its fresh and fragrant palate results partly from the perfect balance between sweetness and acidity. The fine development of carbon dioxide makes it delicately creamy and gives it a persistent and elegant finish.
Vinification: after spending a few hours on skins at a very low temperature, the must is drawn off. It ferments at a low temperature in small stainless steel autoclaves. The prise de mousse takes place during fermentation. The must is cooled and micro-filtered for bottling, which takes place in November, just two months after harvesting.
Release for sale starts before the end of that same November.
The perfect bottle for two… a glass each and a third to fight over… Elisabetta
