Overview

Moscato d'Asti DOCG

The grapes are selected from vineyards on the Vietti estate located in Castiglione Tinella. The vineyards are planted with 4,500 plants per hectare, which are almost 40 years old with yields of 65 hl/ha. Only the best Moscato grapes with extended maturation are used for the Cascinetta. The grapes are crushed, pressed and naturally clarified. Must is kept without sulfite in a cold store, at low temperature in order to naturally prevent fermentation. Before the bottling we add yeast and temperature is increased to 12°-14° C. Alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel autoclave to preserve natural CO2 from the fermentation. The fermentation is stopped at 5.5% Alc. by reducing again the temperature. There is no malolactic fermentation which preserves acidity, varietal fruit character and freshness.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

For the past four generations, the Vietti family has been producing wine in Castiglione Falletto, a small village located in the centre of the Langhe region of Piedmont, from their vineyards located across the five communes designated for the cultivation and production of Barolo. Over recent years Luca Currado-Vietti had taken over the winemaking direction from his late father Alfredo, and Luca’s brother-in-law Mario Cordero responsibility for sales and marketing from Luca’s mother Luciana. Luca’s wife ElenaPenna assists with administration and public relations. Each family member is closely linked to theoverall objective, to produce the highest quality wines, whilst retaining respect for the traditions of thespecific appellations. Vineyard acquisitions primarily during the 1980s and 1990s, across the Barolocommunes and in Asti, have seen the total Vietti holdings grow to 32 hectares. Luca Currado-Vietti is notlooking to increase production, but rather to achieve better control over fruit quality, and overwinemaking and with their new winery.

Vietti produce this Barbaresco from a single 1.4 hectare vineyard Masseria in the Commune of Nieve inBarbaresco. The south facing vines are, on average, 40 years old, and are cultivated with the guyotsytem, on calcareous clay soils.
