Decanter Awards: Moscato d’Asti 2016 scored 91 points
Our new Moscato d’Asti 2016 scored 91 points at the Decanter World Wine Award, major prize given by the tasting panel judges of the English magazine. The score is worth a Silver Medal. Another award that matches the 90 points already assigned in April to Barbera d’Asti Vespa 2015.
Our Moscato d’Asti is a wine that brings joy, just like the label: a glass filled with golden wine and a butterfly drawn by a child. The grapes come from hilly vineyards with a good exposure and a planting density of 5.000 vines per hectare. The varietal is Moscato Bianco, the most widespread in the Asti hills, where it best expresses sweetness and aromatic quality. We harvest it between the end of August and the beginning of September, depending on the vintage, and the grapes are only picked and selected by hand.
It is a dessert wine par excellence: perfect with all the baked sweets, it goes well with fresh pastries, custard cakes, fruit tarts and puddings. It is also very well paired with Roccaverano robiola, fresh and medium-ripe cheese.
