Description

Saracco Moscato d’Asti 2021

Saracco Moscato d’Asti is a lightly sparkling, fresh and fruity wine. The nose opens with aromas of peaches, apples and honeysuckle. The complex and medium-bodied palate possesses a perfect balance between sweetness and acidity. Flavours of sweet peaches, apricots, orange blossoms and lemon zest come to the fore before closing with beautiful persistency on the finish. 

100% Moscato Bianco Canelli. The fruit for this wine comes from vineyards located in the Municipality of Castiglione Tinella, Santo Stefano Belbo, Castagnole Lanze and Calosso.

After harvesting, the bunches go through a gentle pressing to extract the most flavourful juice from the outermost part of the grapes. the must is kept in stainless steel containers at -3°C, where it can be kept for months. When there is market demand, it is then transferred into autoclaves for temperature-controlled fermentation, microfiltered for purity and the bottled to keep the freshness and flavours intact.

This lovely, sweet sparkler opens with heady aromas of yellow stone fruit, spring blossoms and wild aromatic herbs. The savory palate delivers ripe apricot, creamy yellow peach, rosemary and sage. Crisp acidity not only keeps it focused and tangy, but seamlessly balances the sweetness so it’s never cloying but always bright and racy. A refined, foaming mousse provides lots of finesse.
