It is harvested in late August, vinified in stainless and is ready for bottling a few months later. Paolo Saracco bottles weekly so the consumer is always getting the freshest wine.

Paolo is 100% dedicated to making Moscato and has earned the following of consumers world- wide, including hip hop celebrities who have rapped about Saracco Moscato in their songs. And, if you can hold on to a bottle for your cellar, it ages beautifully – contrary to common beliefs.

Area of Production: Castiglione Tinella –Piedmont - Italy
Varietal: Moscato d’Asti
Wine Notes: Lightly sparkling aromatic wine. Aromas of peach, apricot, lemon peel and white flowers. Complex, good body with balance between sweetness and acidity, nice persistence.
Wine Making Techniques: Grapes are gently pressed and the juice is held at cold temperature (38F˚). Fermentation takes place in special pressurized tanks: after approximately one week of fermentation the wine is chilled down and fermentation stops. The wine then goes through sterile filtration and is bottled cold. The residual sugar in the Moscato is about 140 grams per liter.
Recommended Pairings: While most Italians tend to drink the frizzante Moscato as a digestif or for celebrations, Saracco Moscato d'Asti is the perfect everyday wine that goes well with pizza, salumi, sushi, spicy foods, fruity desserts, etc. At 6% alcohol, you can drink it for breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon pick me up, aperitif, with dinner and then even finish your evening with a glass – in other words....Moscato is extremely versatile at any time of the day or night!
