Moscato d’Asti "CASCINETTA" DOCG VIETTI
This traditional wine of Piedmont is famous worldwide. It praises the “DOCG” denomination and it is produced with 100% Moscato grapes, cultivated in small vineyards around the village Castiglione Tinella (4500 plants per hectare). Only the best ones, that are around 40 years old, are used for the production of “Moscato Cascinetta”. The wine making process starts with soft pressing, followed by natural cold decanting. The fermentation is blocked by the cold temperature but when it begins, the temperature raises naturally, reaching 12-14°C. All the process is managed in steel autoclaves in order to preserve natural CO2. When the alcoholic strength comes to 5,5% Vol, the wine is cooled in order to fix that percentage and to maintain it stable, then it is filtered. This Moscato doesn’t need the malolactic fermentation and it is bottled with sterile filtration.

Recommended food pairings while tasting this Moscato produced by Vietti
Excellent as happy hour. Desserts made with fruits or cream are its perfect combination, but it can be suggested with butter biscuits too. Sensational with mouldy or aged cheeses, you have to try it with lobster. It has to be served at 8°C in a high, wide wine glass.
