Description

100% Moscato Bianco. Located in the heart of the Langhe hills, at the top of the village of Castiglione Falletto, the Vietti wine cellar was founded in the late 1800s by Carlo Vietti. The estate has gradually grown over the course of time, and today the vineyards include some of the most highly-prized terroirs within the Barolo wine-growing area. Although they have been making wine for four generations, the turning point came in the 1960s when Luciana Vietti married winemaker and art connoisseur Alfredo Currado, whose intuitions – from the production of one of the first Barolo crus (1961), through the single-varietal vinification of Arneis (1967) to the invention of Artist Labels (1974) – made him both symbol and architect of some of the most significant revolutions of the time. His intellectual, professional, and prospective legacy was taken up by Luca Currado Vietti (Luciana and Alfredo’s son) and his wife Elena, who have contributed to the success of the Vietti brand – universally recognized today as being one of the very finest Italian wine labels – by continuing along the path of the pursuit of quality, considered experimentation and working for expansion and consolidation internationally. The Vietti Moscato comes from the family’s estate in Castglione Tinella and is made with the same care and attention as the still wines.  They use a selection of older vines (40+ years old) from the estate, green harvest, and the traditional fermentation process with a closed-top tank and natural fermentation for two to three weeks. The wine has a slight fizz with delicate sweetness balanced by good acidity. Notes of peaches, roses, and ginger round out this refreshing bottle.
