The moscato grape, the most renown of Aromatic varieties, requires a specific technique to preserve all the grape's fragrance in the wine.
Immediately after the harvest, done only by hand, we press the grapes softly and we clarify and filter the must.
We preserve this grape juice in refrigerated tanks at 2 °C below zero until it is time for the temperature controlled fermentation, which is made in autoclave with selected yeasts to obtain a lively wine.
The producing process is the same for all the Moscato wines, although everyone has specific characteristics based on the different vineyards.
