Barolo DOCG Trecomuni

Grape Variety: Nebbiolo 100%

Alcohol Content: 14.5%

Vinification: 

Tasting Characteristics: According to the ancient Piedmontese tradition, in order to obtain a perfect Barolo, one has to source grapes from three different terroir. The Helvetian soil of Serralunga or Monforte will contribute character and longevity, the mixed soil of Barolo, Castiglione or Novello will bring finesse and elegance and finally the Tortonian soil of La Morra or Verduno will deliver fruit and freshness. From the union of three "communes" this Barolo was born, thus combining all great features of different Barolo terroir soil types. Four years ago this ancient tradition became Maurizio Rosso's new project.
It has finally become true and it is ready for you to taste.

Moscato d'Asti DOCG

Grape Variety: 100% Moscato

Alcohol Content: 5%

Vinification: The Moscato vine is grown in a wide area that goes from the province of Cuneo to that of Alessandria and produces an aromatic wine unique in the world. This beautiful golden colored grape with a sugary pulp is rich in aromatic substances that pass directly into the must and give the characteristic "moscato" flavor.
The vinification involves the direct pressing of the grapes in a controlled atmosphere to obtain a delicate and fragrant must that is immediately clarified, filtered and stored at low temperature to avoid fermentation.

Once the harvesting operations are over, the must is fermented in an autoclave up to 5 degrees of alcohol and about 1.5 atmospheres of overpressure.

At this point the fermentation is blocked with the aid of cold and the wine is ready for bottling and immediate consumption.

Tasting Characteristics: Moscato d'Asti is a sweet white wine, slightly sparkling with good acidity and delicate complex aromas.
