Moscato d’Asti DOCG GIARDINO
Moscato wine is famous for its sweet flavors of peach, orange blossom and nectarine.
The name originates from Italy, but the Muscat grape may be one of the oldest cultivated varieties in the world. It’s time to rediscover Moscato wine.
What is Moscato Wine?
In most cases Moscato wine is a sweet, slightly bubbly (aka frizzante) white wine made from Muscat Blanc grapes often referred to more specifically as Moscato d’Asti.
Though Moscato is often sweet, its low alcohol (5-7% ABV) and refreshing flavor profile makes Moscato more than just a dessert wine.
Moscato has one of the most unique smells of all wine. It’s so unique that wine people often just describe it just as “Muscat Aroma,” which is not that helpful.

Winery located on the border of two famous grape-growing regions: the Monferrato and Langhe, has been a family-run winemaker for seven-generations.
From the vineyards, located in viticultural areas, the beautiful surrounding landscape may also be enjoyed, stretching across to the hill of San Michele in the form of a natural amphitheater continuously exposed to the sun.
Thanks to the diverse characteristics of the soil, various varieties of grape can be grown: the red Barbera, Dolcetto, Brachetto and white Cortese and Moscato.
The cellars have changed considerably over the past two centuries, the most recent taking place in 2001, in which the latest part of the cellar for the fermentation of musts and wines was constructed. Equipped with stainless steel and fiberglass tanks, the structure has been built with materials of modern design for their good thermal and acoustic insulation, while considerably increasing the ease of maintenance and cleaning processes.
The traditional method of the family is to use only the indigenous yeasts from the grape.
The aging of the wine takes place in the oldest part of the cellar. It is a place full of charm, where the history of the successive generations of men and women can be felt in the transformation of wine.
Built on the north side of the house, semi-underground and with three small windows to ensure a constant temperature throughout the year, the right degree of humidity, and very little light; all factors determining the correct maturation and conservation of stored wine.
The barrels are made of wood while having capacities ranging from 25 hl to 38 hl. Some date back to the early 1900s, while the most recent were purchased in 2002. Also very important and influential is the type of wood used, namely oak, chestnut and acacia, each with different features and qualities.
