MONTALBERA Moscato D'Asti San Carlo Sparkling Dessert Wine 2015

The cultivation of the Moscato grape is very ancient. It was already mentioned in 1200's within the statutes of the Canelli Commune. Giovan Battista Croce, a Milanese jeweller who moved to Turin at the end of the century, is considered the father of Moscato d'Asti. In his private cellars, he developed the technique of preparing sweet, aromatic and low-alcoholic wines. Moscato d'Asti has achieved extraordinary qualitative levels thanks to the spread of modern oenological technology, especially that of cold, which has allowed to retain the aromas and flavours of the fruit in the wine, while at the same time stabilising the product.

History, tradition, dedication, application, and continuous research keep it precious and unique, enhancing its peculiar characteristics. Excellent with sweets and as an aperitif accompanied by exotic fresh fruit. Moscato d'Asti San Carlo is produced on the second farm owned in Castiglione Tinella in Langa, San Carlo Region dedicated to the best productions as well as home the birthplace of the head of the family Knight Enrico Riccardo Morando. The name San Carlo on the label is in honour of the little church located a few steps from the vineyards in front of the farm.
