  • Vintage Report

    • The 2022 vintage was exceptional due to unusual weather conditions and unexpected results. There was a scarcity of rain and snow during winter, and summer was characterized by earliness, drought, and record-breaking temperatures. However, grapes were healthy and beautiful at harvest time, thanks to some key factors. Rain showers in July and August and cool nights during the growing season helped limit the effects of drought and high temperatures. The experience gained over the years and the unstoppable strength of nature was also essential. Vines are self-regulated depending on the water reserves in the soil, allowing them to deal with severe drought. Despite the worrisome conditions, all new wines have great character, bright freshness, harmony, and good potential for long aging.

  • Tasting Notes

    • The Moscato d’Asti 2022 has the power to bring us back to the most authentic Piedmontese tradition, thanks to the sweet notes of peach that are perfectly balanced by elegant hints of citrus and sage. Fresh, with a refined and delicate bubble that favors drinkability, it has a long and intense finish that recalls balsamic and fruity scents.
