Moscato Passito Doc "San Giovanni"

bottiglia_moscato_passito

Grape variety: Moscato 100%.

Vineyards: grapes are grown within the “San Giovanni” farmhouse vineyards located in Nizza Monferrato

Tasting notes: it has a dark straw colour with amber reflections that immediately reveals wine consistency. It is typified by a fine and intense nose with enticing scent. The bouquet offers a sequence of dried fruit aromas that reminds of fig, apricot and orange peel with sweet notes of icing sugar and honey. Extremely persistent to the palate, it is not sickly-sweet, as the strong sugary residual is properly balanced with acidity.

Vinification: Muscat grapes are harvested at the end of September, late in autumn when grapes are overripened and begin to wither on the plant. Once harvested, grapes are put on straw mats to dry in the Estate farmhouse. Immediately after pressing, the must is poured into oak barriques for fermentation. Refinement lasts more than 18 months.

Wine release: it begins in September three years after harvest

Production: approximately 4.000 bottles x 0.375cl.

Alcohol content: Alcohol 13,50% Vol.
