Saracco Moscato d'Asti 2012

Saracco Moscato d'Asti 750ml 2012     
Sku: 13116

The Saracco winery is located in the village of Castiglione Tinella, between Alba and Santo Stefano Belbo. For four generations the Saracco family has produced a wine that is considered the reference point for Moscato d'Asti. Now managed by Paolo Saracco, careful vineyard management and strict control over the entire winemaking process has added to the family's reputation and led to Paolo's nickname, "The Maestro of Moscato. Situated throughout the Castiglione Tinella appellation, the terroir and microclimate of the family's vineyards are particularly well-suited for the Moscato grape limestone mixed with sandy veins and elevation levels that provide just the right temperature and humidity levels.

Tasting notes
. Fragrant aromas of summer stone fruits like apricot and peach explode from the glass. The palate is refreshing with mouth watering acidity. The finish is very long with the perfect touch of residual sugar.

Technical notes
Produced from Moscato Bianco Canelli sourced from various estate vineyards in the village of Castiglione Tinella in the Cuneo province of Piedmont. Fermentation takes place in special pressurized tanks. After roughly a week of fermentation, when the wine has reached the proper balance of alcohol, sugar and acidity, it is chilled down and fermentation is arrested. The wine then goes through a sterile filtration to eliminate the yeast, and is bottled cold. To insure freshness the wine is fermented one tank at a time, 12 months a year.
