This method of production is governed by the rules of the Asti consorzio. The wine is made solely from Moscato grapes that have been grown in the Asti and Cuneo areas of Northern Italy for hundreds of years. After the harvest the grapes are crushed and soft pressed, and the must vinified separately from the skins. The juice is put into large temperature controlled tanks and fermented to produce a very light base wine.
The moscato bianco grape (also known as Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains) has long been found in the Piedmont and along with Nebbiolo may be one of the oldest grapes in the region. However, the production of sparkling Asti from Moscato Bianco is a relatively recent product.
The official Asti and Cuneo zone stretches beyond the limits of the Asti province, to both east and west, nudging in the Cuneo and Alessandria provinces respectively, its western limit is the village of Serralunga D'Alba, although few Moscato vines are planted there. The area is quite hilly and the sloping vineyards create many different mesoclimates and exposures.
To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 1 year of purchase.
