About the Producer

Ca’ Bianca was founded in the early 1950s. The property covers 39 hectares of vineyards that fan out around the vinification and bottling cellar in one solid block. Most of the plots are planted to Barbera, a typical variety of the zone, that has been used here since the 2008 vintage for the Barbera d’Asti DOCG. The Barbera is flanked by a range that also offers a selection of the best wines in the territory, including the Moscato d’Asti, Dolcetto d’Acqui, Gavi and Barolo. In keeping with this cellar’s mission to be young and dynamic, the range also contains several new wines – Langhe Nebbiolo and Roero Arneis – in addition to its classic products. Ca’ Bianca aims to be a modern estate without any historical restrictions, continuously developing and forward-looking. Its prime objective is to offer high-quality wines that while recognizing the typical characteristics of the territory, also consistently strive to adopt forms in line with emerging consumer trends.


Grapes

100% Moscato D'Asti


Vineyard

Vines trained with the traditional Guyot system with a density of 4,500 plants/Ha and a wine yield of 70 Hl/Ha.


Vinification

The grapes are allowed to over-ripen slightly then soft-pressed. Must from the first-pressing is decanted by gravity without being clarified and immediately allowed to ferment in pressure tanks at a temperature of 15°C. The fermentation process is interrupted by cooling when the desired level of alcohol is reached, leaving a pleasant natural residual sugar in the new wine.


Ageing

After the alcoholic fermentation, the Moscato d’Asti is allowed to rest and settle down in the bottle for a short period of time before being released for consumption.


Tasting Notes

Fine mousse and pale gold colour; delicate and intense bouquet, with touches of peaches and sage and hints of citrus fruits; sweet, clean flavour enlivened by an attractive citric note with a pleasant aftertaste of fruit.


Analysis

5% alcohol vol.


Food Suggestions

Serve with fruit tarts, biscuits, hazelnut cakes, oven-baked pastries. Excellent on its own as an aperitif.
