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.
