A Moscato d'Asti made from grapes grown in the estate's vineyard located in Canelli, a UNESCO village and now a separate appellation
due to the quality of its wines, renowned for their superiority, when compared to the main Asti appellation.
This Moscato d'Asti has a floral and fruity nose with nuances of acacia flowers, pears, golden apples, citrus, pineapple reminiscent of summer, fresh, elegant, not overly sweet, perfectly balanced on the palate. Delicious.
A good Moscato d'Asti is a wine for many occasions, not just for Christmas even though it pairs perfectly Panettone and biscuits, non-creamy pastry and fruits, but it also works unexpectedly well with cold cuts and fermented cheeses and even spicy Asian cuisine, making it a wine for everyone and many occasion.
The L’Armangia winery have been making wines in Canelli, Piedmont, from 1850, and today they are amongst the top wineries of the area particularly with regard to growing and producing Barbera d’Asti and Moscato D’Asti. Ignazio, the owner and winemaker, is not your conventional winemaker, he knows his grapes as if they are his own sons and daughters and he knows what they can produce and he firmly believes in the Barbera d’Asti grape, but also grow a variety of other grapes including Albarossa, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and a very small vineyard of Pinot Nero that makes an amazing wine.
