Vintage: 2020

Type: White

Region: Piedmont 

Grape variety: Muscat (dry)

This fascinating wine comes from the younger Muscat vineyards (planted in the 1970s) the team works with. In August they defoliated in order to expose the grapes to the sun (the vineyard is on a steep southern slope) and "get rid" of a part of the terpenes (the molecule that gives the typical Muscat aroma). The wine was fermented in barrels giving it a rich texture. A decidedly different take on this classic Piedmontese grape, this has all the hallmarks of the coveted Moscato aromatics, balanced with rich fruit and an oily mouthfeel.
