Product Description

Asti is located in the south-eastern part of Italy’s north-western Piedmont region. This area, a DOCG since 1994, is thought to have been home to the Moscato Bianco grape for centuries; the variety was written about in the Statues of the Commune of Cannelli in the 1200s. In the 16th century the recipe for Moscato d’Asti was created by a renowned Milanese jeweler, Giovan Battista Croce, who had made jewelry for the Royal Family. He changed careers, purchasing a vineyard and perfecting the creation of the wine. In his publication Of the Excellence and Diversity of Wines that are Made on the Mountain of Turin and How To Make Them, he described how the Moscato Bianco grapes must be separated from the stems before pressing and the must vinified separately from the skins. Additionally, filtering the wine several times resulted in a clean, sweet juice.
