This refreshing, light and fruity wine has just a hint of spritz, allowing the bright sherbet, elderflower and honeysuckle flavours of the moscato giallo grape to take centre stage. It balances alcohol of just 5.5%, acidity and sweetness perfectly in a style reminiscent of the great wines of Asti.

Montevecchio Moscato is made from 100% Moscato Giallo grapes that are pressed and wild fermented on solids in stainless steel tank. The wine is fermented very cold, under 10 degrees, and is a long slow ferment. Fermentation is deliberately stopped when the alcohol (only 5.5.%) and sugar are in balance, by intense chilling. The wine is then spritzed during storage in a charmat tank before being bottled, resulting in a lightly frizzante style.
