Dessert Wine

Moscato d’Asti D.O.C.G.

Moscato was already well-known by the Greeks and Romans. Resin-adjusted Muscatellum was among the most common food eaten by the Latins. Now however Moscato has found its true home in a small region in the south of Piedmont along a hilly strip of 52 tiny localities belonging to three provinces. In the mid of these there is Canelli, in the province of Asti, Santo Stefano Belbo in the province of Cuneo and Strevi in the province of Alessandria. These territories are suited for winegrowing and fall in that band of soil and climate extending across Europe where great wines have born.
