Piemonte DOC Moscato Passito

"La Bella Estate"
Winemaking Philosophy

Vineyard management techniques are aimed at obtaining the maximum grape health, an essential condition for prolonging the ripening process and obtaining high concentrations of sugar and aromas. 

The grapes are harvested using single layer crates and partially dried to achieve the correct concentration of sugars. After pressing, the precious must is left to ferment for about 10 days at a temperature of 18-20 °C. 
This is followed by 12 months on yeasts. During this phase, the wine reaches the perfect balance between the concentration of aromas and the complexity of the bouquet.
