SOME DETAILS ABOUT THIS WINE
Grapes: 100% Moscato Bianco di Canelli
Production: After harvesting, the ripe Moscato grapes undergo soft pressing.
The product obtained is chilled to 0°C to prevent fermentation. Each individual batch is filtered and put in a pressurised tank which retains the carbon dioxide and warms the product, which is still completely sugary, to a temp. of 15°C.
This promotes the fermentation process which is allowed to continue until an alcohol content of 5.5% vol. is reached.
The product, which is now Moscato d’Asti, is chilled to a temp. of 0 °C to block fermentation.
The wine is bottled at the beginning of November.
Tasting notes: A high-altitude Moscato, full-bodied and velvety with an intense bouquet featuring scents of candied fruit, acacia blossom and a musky background. The scent of “violet” is quite unique.
Gastronomic pairings: Served cool at a temperature of 10-12 °C in crystal glasses, it pairs delicately with desserts, fresh fruit and fruit salads.
Moscato d’Asti La Caliera is also available in the nice DOLCE VITA BOX.
The box contains:
- 2 bottles of Moscato La Caleria (750ml)
- 1 glass
