Pale yellow in color and slightly "frizzante”, this Moscato d'Asti has intense aromas of peaches, rose petals and ginger. On the palate it is delicately sweet with modest acidity, good balance and a finish of fresh apricots.
Often overlooked when pairing wine for a special meal, dessert wines offer a range from fortified “stickies” (think Port) to such lighter and more delicate wines – such as the increasingly popular, gently effervescent wines of northern Italy’s Piedmont sub-region – Asti. Vietti’s Luca Currado has fashioned a pale yellow beauty – creamier than most – scented with peach and rose petal. Peach continues on the palate with hints of apricot on the crisp finish. Food match for this “summer in a bottle”: creamy pastry (cannoli), fruit and cheese boards.
|Harvested from 35+ year old vines on the Vietti estate in Castiglione Tinella. Primary fermentation in stainless steel autoclave to preserve some natural CO2. Yeasts are added for a secondary fermentation in bottle.
|Vignole farm is situated in the heart of Chianti Classico, in proximity of the town of Panzano. The Nistri family, who has worked in the wine sector since 1865, acquired the property in 1970. Today the vineyard is managed and the wine is produced by brothers Massismo and Fabrizio. The vineyards, covering 51 acres, are situated along the river Pesa, better known in the Panzano zone as ”the Conca d’ Oro”, because of the high quality wines that come from here. The altitude varies between 950-1050 ft. above sea level and the vineyards get long sun exposure to the SE and SW.
