Simply a revelation. It's drawn from a single hectare of 70-year-old vines in Cassinasco. 2019 was awarded the coveted Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri. Oh, and did we mention it can age extremely well (developing deeper lime and aged Riesling notes)?
This wine is simply a revelation. It's drawn from a single hectare of 70-year-old vines in Cassinasco, on a south-facing hillside with limestone-rich soils. Moscato surrounding the town of Canelli has been grown since the 13th century and it has always been associated with greatness. It is in the heart of the region, where the chalky soils and high altitude are perfect for Moscato.
For the third year (out of six releases) this 2019 was awarded the coveted Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri from Gambero Rosso Guide. This is an extraordinarily fine, restrained, citrussy, floral and mineral wine. The perfume offers gentle notes of grapefruit and lemon sherbet, while the palate is so fine, delicate and restrained, shot through with white peach, nectarine and lemon zest. It has crystalline freshness and an intense, chalky finish.
This is a wine more than capable of expressing itself with complex food. Of course, it can work with the classics--hazelnut-based desserts, fruit and cream tarts etc.--but it also has the intensity and mineral drive to partner with all kinds of savoury foods. Oh, and did we mention it can age extremely well (developing deeper lime and aged Riesling notes)?
