This has returned to the classic style of Moscato that Vietti is known for. The nose shows more tropical fruits, white peach, orange blossom water and a just there Meyer lemon. The palate is light and bright with good acidity and a candied white flowers, tropical fruits and a light blossom honey. D&M Tasting Notes
Pale sunshine yellow color and slight frizzante, this Moscato d’Asti has intense aromas of peaches, rose petals and ginger. On the palate it is delicately sweet and sparkling with modest acidity, good balance, good complexity and a finish of fresh apricots.
The grapes are selected from small vineyards located in Castiglione Tinella. The vineyards are planted with 4,500 vines per hectare, which are almost 40 years old. Only the best Moscato grapes with extended maturation are used for the Cascinetta. The grapes are crushed, pressed and naturally clarified. Must is kept without sulfites in a cold storage, at low temperature in order to naturally prevent fermentation. Before the bottling, we add yeast and temperature is increased to 12°-14° C. Alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel pressured tanks to preserve natural CO2 from the fermentation. The fermentation is stopped at 5% Alc. by reducing again the temperature. There is no malolactic fermentation to preserves acidity, varietal fruit character and freshness. Winery Notes
