Piedmont, Italy: Moscato d’ Asti
Intense ruby red in color, fragrant nose with scents of wild prune, black cherry jam, pepper. Dry but enveloping in the mouth with sweet notes of red fruits; balanced alcohol content and stunningly soft thanks to its reduced acidity.
Sustainably Produced: The Bava family estate extends in Monferrato and Langa, with fifty hectares of vineyards and twenty hectares of natural fields and woods, cultivated with the same awareness, care and attention of the olden times resulting in a sustainable agriculture with a reduced environmental impact. Walking along the Bava vineyards, you will notice the grass clippings and the prunings used as natual fertilizers, the poles, all strictly made of wood coming from renewable forests or grassing between vine rows, which not only helps prevent soil erosion, but also serves as proof that no hebicides are used.

FROM THE VINTNER:
“Our Barbera comes from a friend’s vineyards in Monforte d’Alba who shares our philosophy and lets us care for the grapes throughout the growing season. Barbera needs hot and semi-dry summers to perform well and good canopy cleaning to avoid problems while ripening. As the grapes begin to ripen, excess clusters are cut. The grapes are then hand harvested early October in cases of 20 kg each. After harvest, the grapes are destemmed without crushing and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 15-25 days. We focus on extracting the few tannins that Barbera has without losing color and aromatics. Following malolactic fermentation the wine ages for 4 months in oak cask and 8 months in concrete. It is then bottled between October and January.”
Perfumes : plums, raspberries, blueberry with some delicate wisteria hints. Taste : very easy to drink, with vibrant acidity; fleshy and juicy.
