' Quintessential Wines - Luca Bosio Moscato

Luca Bosio Moscato d’Asti D.O.C.G. 2013


This straw-yellow Moscato comes from a grape variety that has probably the highest level of complex aromas of any Piedmont grape. It is up to the winemaker to bring the sweet fruit and floral flavors to the fore during vinification, as most of the work has already been done in the vineyards. The sunny hills, dry soils and cool climate of the Asti region helps shape Italy’s finest effervescent Moscatos.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The Moscato grapes for this wine come from vineyards located in Santo Stefano Belbo villages, at 200 to 300 ft. above sea level. The average age of the vines is 30 years and they are grown on a Southeast and Southwest facing, at a density of about 5,000 plants per hectare. After harvesting, the grapes are pressed and the must is fermented in temperature-controlled autocalves until the wine is at 5% alcohol. Then, it is hermetically sealed, allowing pris de mousse to take place over two months in its own yeast.

Serving Hints
This wine is a perfect accompaniment to fruits, aged cheeses or hazelnut cake, or great as an aperitif.
