    Winemaker Notes

    A sparkler with persistent, fine bubbles and creamy foam. Apple aromas abound, perfectly balancing the sweetness and acidity. Notes of white stone fruit, such as white peaches, linger on the palate.

    Blend: 100% Moscato

    Villa Rosa, Asti, Piedmont, Italy
    Image of winery
    Villa Rosa was created by the Opici family as a tribute to the late Rose Opici, a founder of the Opici Wine Group. Rose was partial to Piedmont’s indigenous grapes, particularly the white varietals, regularly enjoying a glass of Gavi with her favorite Italian fare or celebrating life with sweet bubbles from Asti.

    From Asti to Barolo, Opici collaborated with some of Piedmont’s finest growers and producers, each specialists in their respective appellations.

    In a sense, the Villa Rosa collection embodies Rose’s dynamic personality. Just as she was charismatic and full of life, these wines are fully-flavored, approachable, easy-going, and food-friendly selections.

    Recognized as the source of the best Barbera in all of Italy, Asti is a province (as well as major city) in Piedmont, consisting of a gentle, rolling landscape with vineyards, farmland and forests alternating throughout.

    Barbera d’Asti can be made in an array of styles from relatively straightforward, fruity and ready for consumption early, to the more concentrated, oak aged version with an ability to cellar impressively for 10-15 years and beyond. Some of the very best sites for Barbera in Asti are concentrated in the subzone of Nizza Monferrato. Other red varieties grown here include Freisa, Grignolino and Dolcetto, which can be bottled varietally or blended into Barbera.

    Historically consumers commonly associated the Asti region with Asti Spumante and Moscato d’Asti, both playful, aromatic, sparkling wines made from the Muscat grape. Asti Spumante is less sweet, fully fizzy and more alcoholic (yet still clocking in at only around 9% alcohol) while Moscato d’Asti is sweeter, gently sparkling (“frizzante”) and closer to 5 or 6% alcohol. Each is produced in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fresh and fruity flavors of the grape, often including peach, apricot, lychee and rose petal. Asti is also the spot for the pink-hued Brachetto d'Acqui, a slightly sparkling wine ready to charm with its raspberry and rose flavors and aromas.

    Non-Vintage

    View all wine

    A term typically reserved for Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply “NV” on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage Champagne, typically the current year’s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called “vins de reserve” are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single vintage.

    There are also some very large production still wines that may not claim one particular vintage. This would be at the discretion of the winemaker’s goals for character of the final wine.
