Winemaker's Notes:

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% vol.) and the acidity, which - though never high - gives the product an appealing freshness. Pairing suggestions: fresh fruit peaches, strawberries, blueberries, raspberriesā€¦ cream-based desserts panna cotta.

About Ceretto:

For more than 80 years, the Ceretto family has been making wine in Piedmont's Langhe region of Italy and has set the benchmark for quality among Barolo and Barbaresco producers. The family is most well known for producing coveted single-vineyard Nebbiolo wines and introducing high-quality Arneis and Moscato. Today, the Ceretto name is synonymous with estate-grown, carefully produced wines, each expressing purity and elegance.
