. Fragrant aromas of summer stone fruits like apricot and peach explode from the glass. The palate is refreshing with mouth watering acidity. The finish is very long with the perfect touch of residual sugar.

Situated throughout the Castiglione Tinella appellation, the terroirs and microclimates of the family's vineyards are particularly well suited for the Moscato grape - limestone mixed with sandy veins and at elevation levels that provide just the right temperature and humidity level. Lightly sweet and refreshing.
Technical notes
Produced from Moscato Bianco Canelli sourced from various estate vineyards in the village of Castiglione Tinella in the Cuneo province of Piedmont. Fermentation takes place in special pressurized tanks. After roughly a week of fermentation, when the wine has reached the proper balance of alcohol, sugar and acidity, it is chilled down and fermentation is arrested. The wine then goes through a sterile filtration to eliminate the yeast, and is bottled cold. To insure freshness the wine is fermented one tank at a time, 12 months a year.

Producer
The village of Castiglione Tinella, where Saracco is located, is between Alba and Santo Stefano Belbo – two of Piedmont’s most famous wine towns. Luigi Saracco, the great-grandfather of winemaker Paolo Saracco, began growing Moscato grapes in the early 1900s. Paolo grew up in the vineyards and even at an early age he had a desire to make a wine using his family’s name. Upon completion of his enological studies, he began experimenting with new winemaking techniques and modern vineyard management. The Saracco family’s vineyards are in an ideal microclimate for the Moscato grape – the soil is limestone mixed with sandy veins and the elevation provides just the right temperature and humidity balance. Careful vineyard management and strict control over the winemaking process contribute to Saracco’s consistently excellent results and his reputation as the King of Moscato.
