Vietti Moscato d'Asti Cascinetta Vietti 2013

Vietti Moscato d'Asti Cascinetta Vietti 750ML 2013    
Sku: 52070

The history of the Vietti winery traces its roots back to the 19th Century. The estate, which has been in the Vietti family for four generations, is based in the village of Castiglione Falletto in Piedmont’s Langhe region. In 1919 Mario Vietti transformed the family’s farm into a grape growing and wine producing business, creating the first Vietti labeled wines. Alfredo Currado married Mario’s daughter Luciana and made a name for Vietti’s single-vineyard Barolo and Barbera. He also put the native Piedmont varietal Arneis on the wine map. In 1990 Alfredo and Luciana’s son Luca joined the family business as winemaker after working at California's Simi Winery, Opus One and Long Vineyards, and Bordeaux's Mouton-Rothschild. His innovative winemaking utilizes a unique combination of modern and traditional practices. He eliminated equipment that measures acid and tannin levels in favor of a more intuitive approach. Vietti organically farms more than 25 single vineyards with vines up to 90 years of age.

Tasting notes
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.

Technical notes
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.
