Saracco, Moscato d’Asti 2020
- Bottle Size
- Wine Type
This renowned winery run by Paolo Saracco is based in the village of Castiglione Tinella in an area called the Langhe Astigiane. It’s a zone widely regarded as the prime area for the production of Moscato d’Asti. For this wine, the juice from different tanks is first blended and then transferred to autoclaves used to
start fermentation which is activated by raising the temperature and allowing the natural yeasts to begin the transformation of sugar into alcohol. When the alcohol content reaches 5.5% and a perfect balance between acidity, sugars and alcohol is achieved, the temperature is lowered in the autoclave and the fermentation stops. This sweet wine displays a nose of white peaches and fresh grapes and a creamy sweetness with lively citrus acidity; perfect as an aperitif, at the end of the meal or simply on its own. It has 1.5 atm at bottling (basically a light spritz) and 140 g/l of sugar with alcohol at 5.5%.
