Classification: Moscato d'Asti DOCG
The grapes are selected from vineyards on the Vietti estate located in Castiglione Tinella. Only the best Moscato grapes are used for the Cascinetta. The grapes are crushed, pressed and clarified. Alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel autoclave to preserve some natural CO2 from the fermentation. The fermentation is stopped at 5.5% Alc by reducing the temperature. Before the bottling we add yeast and temperature is increased to 12°-14° C for a second fermentation to take place in bottle. There is no malolactic fermentation which preserves acidity, varietal fruit character and freshness.
