Sparkling Wine Dogliotti 1870, Erik Moscato d'Asti 2012
Sparkling - A highly aromatic sweet, sparkling wine that displays typical Moscato traits.
Brilliant straw yellow colour with light golden reflections on the rim. It has a balanced, fine, and persistent frothiness. Its delicate perlage melts in the mouth for a very pleasant sensation. On the nose, it has the typical aroma of Moscato, a perfumed combination of musk, sage, white flowers, and yellow fruits, ripe apricot, and vanilla. The mouthfeel is light, refreshing sweetness that is surprising and contrasts perfectly with its strong acidity. it is very persistent and leaves savoury and mineral notes on the palate.
Perfect wine as an aperitif or to be enjoyed with snacks, crudités, light meals and even desserts. Very versatile indeed.
18 months in bottle
After a brief cold maceration, the grapes are pressed and the must begins alcoholic fermentation. Part of it ferments in stainless steel under controlled temperature with selected yeasts, and the rest is left to ferment with native yeasts in oak barrels. Once both fermentations are completed, the Moscato is left to age on the lees and the two separate parts are blended only in the pre-bottling stage. After bottling, the wine is left to age in the cellars for a minimum of 18 months before it is ready for sale.
'Our unique production method creates a wine that respects the traditional characteristics of Moscato d’Asti DOCG and yet differs in structure and freshness. For this, it can be paired with desserts as well as appetizers and delicate first courses.' - Dogliotti 1870 Estate.
