Winemaker's Notes:

Moscato d'Asti is a unique wine where the beautiful aromas of the grapes are enhanced by a crisp, nice acidity, a light frizziness and the sweetness of the natural residual sugar. The low alcohol content makes it a very easy, pleasant wine perfect to finish a meal with dessert or alone, as a nice mid-day break.

About Saracco:

The Saracco winery is located in the picturesque village of Castiglione Tinella. Located in the heart of the Piedmont Region called the Langhe, which is famous for great wine and incredible cuisine. For four generations the Saracco family has been dedicated to growing the best Moscato d' Asti in the region.

Grapes were first cultivated in the hills surrounding Castiglione Tinella in the 1600s. Throughout history many different grape varieties were planted but Moscato d' Asti proved to be the perfect grape for this appellation. Luigi Saracco, the great grandfather of Paolo, began growing Moscato grapes in the early 1900s. With each generation the legacy and commitment to quality continues.

Paolo Saracco grew up in the vineyards and, even at an early age, had a desire to make a wine with the family name. Upon completion of his enological studies, Paolo began experimenting not only with new winemaking techniques, but also a more modern vineyard management style. The result has been consistent acclaim from the press, and more importantly, his loyal customers.
