Many of you might already be somewhat familiar with this type of wine from the Asti area of the Piedmont region
in Italy: effusively aromatic, effervescent, and deliciously sweet; a pale golden color with a hint of pink. There are
many of this type of wine in the marketplace, but not many with this kind of exquisite character and refinement. In the
world of wine, this kind of distinction is not hard to identify and explain: when a wine comes from a single property
in a growing area that has unique characteristics, character is typically more pronounced. This sparkling Moscato
is a perfect example. From its unique scents of violet and acacia, to its honey, peaches and apricot - all of which
carry through in pinpoint precision to the mouth - to its focused, lively, clean acidity, brisk mouth-feel and lingering,
luscious finish, this sparkling Moscato exemplifies what single-site, old vine, estate-bottled wine can offer relative to
mass-produced wine of the same type: character.
On the estate of Borgo Maragliano in the commune of Loazzolo, just west of Canelli, which gives its name to the local
grape, Muscat Canelli, the Galliano family farms their 35 acres of vines and vinifies their delicious wine, hoping for your discovery
and enjoyment of it. Try pouring some Moscato Caliera over fresh berries and drink a glass while enjoying the fruit, itís an ethereal delight.
