“Bricco Riella” Moscato D’Asti DOCG

  • Moscato D'Asti DOCG


General Overview

Grape Variety:

Moscato bianco


Sandstone with significant presence of limestone and tuft, hills of about 450/500 m. a.s.l.


The grapes are hand-picked during the first week of September, after a careful analysis of the maturation.

Vinification Process:

The harvested grapes are immediately soft-pressed and the must (max. yield 75 I. out of 100 kg of grapes) is cooled to 0° C. and moved to cooling vats, in order to prevent undesired fermentations and maintain the aromas of the grapes. After a few months and based on market demand, the production starts. The must is moved to pressurized vats with temperature control, where it is heated to 20°C. The fermentation occurs with the addition of selected yeasts, which turn sugar into alcohol. When it reaches 4.5-5% alcohol by vol. the fermentation is stopped by cooling down the wine to -3°C, obtaining thus a perfect balance of acidity, sugar and alcohol. Microfiltration sterilizes and stops any residual yeast: the pure and fresh wine is ready for bottling.

Ideal Temperature:

6-8 °C
