Moscato d’Asti DOCG “Cicheta”

The name refers to the Cicchetta vineyard, in San Rocco Seno d’Elvio, which every year gives the best grapes for the production of this wine.

The vineyard is characterized by a marly soil facing west, which emphasizes the typical aromas of this aromatic grape maintaining its natural acidity. Moscato d’Asti Cicheta is ideal both as a dessert wine and as aperitif in combination with savoury snacks or blue cheeses since it’s sweet but never cloying sweetness thanks to the fresh acidity.
