This Moscato is youthful yellow in colour with straw yellow hues. On the nose there are expressive aromas of sage and fresh yellow fruits such as apricots, peaches and exotic fruits. A delicate, fine mousse refreshes and cleanses the palate. The balance between sweetness and freshness carries into a long creamy finish.
Aldo Vaira grows his Moscato grapes in the 'Riforno' vineyard in the Comune of Mango, in the Moscato d'Asti zone. It is a south-facing, 2.5 hectare vineyard planted at the top of a very steep slope, at 420-470 metres above sea level. The vines are trained in mixed Guyot system and were planted between 1986-2007. The planting density is 3,600 vines per hectare.

The bunches were picked differently depending on the vineyard. Vaira tends to allow a few more days of ripening for these grapes to ensure that optimum level of ripeness is achieved. Cold stabilisation is followed by a slow fermentation at a low temperature. Fermentation is then stopped by a drop in temperature, making sure that the perfect level of sweetness carries through to the wine. The wine is kept refrigerated until bottling.
