Borgo Maragliano La Caliera Moscato d’Asti 2021
SPECIAL BUY 6 or more.
Borgo Maragliano’s 25 hectares of vineyard sit 450 metres above sea level, in the heart of Loazzolo on a natural terrace in the Langhe hills. In the spring a gentle sea breeze called the Marin crosses Loazzolo, tempering the night time temperatures, favouring the developing of the grapes’ perfumes. The wines are vinified and packaged by members of the Galliano family, who maintain a high respect for tradition but at the same time employ the most modern vinification techniques, methods and equipment. This Moscato d’Asti is the result of careful and meticulous labour, representing the highest expression of this distinctive territory and of its soil.
From the winery .. “The name La Caliera has been chosen as a tribute to a lady whose home was on the outskirts of our vineyards and who played a treasured part in our lives. The memory of a warm, generous heart and a quiet, noble character is reflected in these old vineyards whose maturity produces a rape harvest rich with “suggestions”.
100% Moscato Bianco di Canelli. After the harvest the moscato grape, now ripe and sweet, undergoes a soft pressing in an air pneumatic press. The product obtained (grape juice) is refrigerated to zero degrees celcius in order to reduce the fermentation activity. It is then filtered and put in a tank which retains the carbon dioxide and warms the product, which is still entirely sugary, to a temperature of 15 degrees celcius. The purpose of this is to promote the fermentation process which is allowed to contirnue until five percent becomes alcohol. The product is then cooled to a temperature of zero degrees celcius in order to prevent further fermentation.
The unusual and distinctive vine produces a full-bodied, robust and velvety Moscato d’Asti. The intense aroma carries fragrance of candied fruit, acacia flowers and a typical musky but delicate bouquet. Its scent of “violet” is quite unique.
Serve it cold in a crystal glass with dessert! 13.5% alc.
