Ceretto Vignaioli di Santo Stefano Moscato d'Asti

Vintage: 2011
With an almost metaphorical return to their origins, in 1976 the Ceretto brothers, together with two partners (Sergio Santi and the brothers Gianpiero and Andrea Scavino) - founded I Vignaioli di Santo Stefano in the village where their father, Riccardo, was born.

The farm works 20 acres of its own land, as well as the San Maurizio estate leased from Count Carlo Vittorio Incisa Beccaria, a prestigious hillside area of approximately 80 acres in Santo Stefano Belbo.

Around 160,000 bottles of Moscato d'Asti, 20,000 of Asti, and 5,000 of Moscato Passito are produced here on average each year. Limited pruning, balanced manuring, thinning of the bunches, and grading of the grapes during the harvest are the cornerstones on which the tending of the vineyards is based, while rackings, clarifications and filtrations reduced to the absolute minimum are the fundamental steps in the winery that guarantee to bring out the aromatic properties of the grapes.

This sweet white is the dessert wine par excellence. Straw-yellow of varying intensity depending on the vintage, it has an intensely fruity nose which is aromatic and very persistent. The sweet flavor is beautifully balanced with the low alcohol (5%) and the acidity, which - though never high - gives the product an appealing freshness.--Winemakers Note
