Ca' d' Gal Moscato d' Asti Vite Vecchia 2014
Our Vigna Vecchia Moscato d’Asti wine comes from three plots of land situated in the Valdivilla hills. They are combined to create a one-hectare vineyard, planted with an old clone of the white Canelli Moscato, which is now 60 years old. Thanks to the perfect and completely south-facing exposure, in which the term Sorì has its most eloquent expression, all the vineyard rows ripen regularly with uniformly golden clusterss of grapes.
The earth is light and whitish and the higher percentage of limestone which makes it ideal for giving structure and body, while the temperate climate, with cold winters and rainy autumns alternating with hot but dry summers give this Moscato the necessary freshness and mineral content. In 2003, we decided to lengthen the resting and maturing time in bottles of part of the production, before selling it. Since then 1,300 bottles are kept each year and only placed on the market in September of the fifth year after the harvest.
