Coppo Moncalvina – Moscato d’Asti “Canelli”, Asti, Italy; 2021 

 December 1, 2022

Of the 52 townships that may carry the denomination Moscato d’Asti DOCG, only 22 are included in the prestigious subzone of “Canelli” where Moscato has been cultivated since the 13th century. Only grapes from vineyards located 165 meters above sea level can be hand-picked for the Moscato d’Asti DOCG “Canelli”.

A soft pressing is followed by a slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature until the alcohol content reaches 5%. During this process part of the carbon dioxide produced by the fermentation is captured by the wine giving it a natural light fizziness. Before bottling the wine is micro-filtered to get transparency, and purity and stop any residual fermentation of the yeasts. This wine pours straw yellow while slightly tinted with greenish reflections. The nose is floral along with peach and pear overtones that match the palate. Pair this with cakes, cookies, fruit-based desserts, or traditional goat cheese.
