2013 Vietti Cascinetta Moscato d’Asti DOCG
The grapes are
selected from vineyards on the Vietti estate located in Castiglione Tinella.
The vineyards are planted with 4,500 plants per hectare, which are almost 40
years old with yields of 65 hl/ha. Only the best Moscato grapes with extended
maturation are used for the Cascinetta. The grapes are crushed, pressed and
naturally clarified. Must is kept without sulfite in a cold store, at low
temperature in order to naturally prevent fermentation. Before the bottling we
add yeast and temperature is increased to 12°-14° C. 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. There is no malolactic fermentation which preserves acidity,
varietal fruit character and freshness.
“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.
The perfect accompaniment to Pan-Asian cuisine and lobster as well as fruit
based and creamy desserts.” – Winery Notes
