Moscato D’Asti DOCG is one of the most characteristic and inimitable products of Piedmontese viticulture. Made with 100% Moscato grapes. Unlike Champagne, there is no secondary fermentation allowed in the bottle. Although not a sparkling wine, it maintains his “mousse” a liveliness that makes it unique thanks to the stopping of alcoholic fermentation by refrigeration at a very low temperature.
MOSCATO D’ASTI DOCG
Moscato grape seems to be the oldest grape of those grown in Italy and is probably a vine with the greatest number of historical attestations. It arrived in Italy thanks to the Greek colonists, who spread it through the transport of seeds and shoots. From Italy it spread throughout Europe. The term known since Roman times “Moscato” means “fragrant”. Its great development arrives in the second half of 1500 with the name Moscato Bianco del Piemonte. For the farmers who worked the land, for example, it was the best wine to combine with a genuine salty snack.
