A joint venture between the Ceretto family and Vignaioli di Santo Stefano, this Moscato d'Asti gets its characteristic effervescence through a second, temperature-controlled fermentation in tank, which is stopped when the wine reaches 5% alcohol. The Moscato Bianco grapes used for this wine are all harvested by hand from the Santo Stefano Belbo, Canelli, and Calosso areas.
This Moscato d'Asti is straw yellow in color with a characteristic nose of sweet melons, orange blossoms, jasmine, and honeysuckle. On the palate, the sweet melon, pear, and floral flavors are balanced by refreshing acidity.
While this makes for an exquisite cocktail, it also pairs well with a handful of Piedmont's famed roasted hazelnuts.
