The Vietti family has been producing wine in Castiglione Falletto in the heart of Le Langhe in Piedmont for five generations, with 33 estate vineyards located across all 11 communes designated for the cultivation and production of Barolo, plus Roero for Arneis and Agliano Asti for Barbera and Moscato. In 2016 Vietti was purchased by the American Krause family, however current generation winemaker Luca Currado-Vietti continues to direct the Vietti Estate meticulously, together with his wife Elena Penna-Currado, to produce some of the finest and most representative wines of Le Langhe.
This is one of Italy’s finest! Moscato hails from the highly acclaimed Piedmont wine region in the north of Italy. Lightly sweet and floral, this fresh and zesty sparkling wine oozes with flavours of mandarin orange sorbet, passion fruit and candied ginger. Great summer drinking and an ideal aperitif, try it with Asian dishes and lobster. It also goes perfectly with pastry, fruit based and creamy desserts, and blue cheeses.
Light yellow and very frizzante in the glass, with good retention of its head of fine bubbles, which bring the deliciously fruity muscat aromas leaping out of the glass. A touch of sweetness, refreshing fizz, and all in all, a superior moscato—perhaps the best of them all. It's young and fruity, yet the aromas seem more detailed than most moscatos.
