2017 Elvio Cogno Moscato d'Asti DOCG
This delightful wine has a bright, pale-yellow color while the nose is aromatic and intense with exotic fruits and lots of flowers. The mouth is sweet and rich but the fresh acidity gives a very balanced taste. The delicate petillant makes this wine extremely drinkable.
From the winery:
The 2018 harvest was quite late and arduous; yet, the crop shows immense promise after a long and engaging growing season. The beginning of spring was quite difficult due to the heavy rain, and the summer was considerably warm and quite dry. The conditions allowed the vines to catch up upon a quite slow start. From the last days of June through the month of July, the sunny days encouraged a fast vegetative growth that required several trimmings and manual leaves thinning, especially in the shaded internal parts that were less active in photosynthesis. These efforts produced even cluster growth, and it carried to an early veraison in the month of August. Toward the beginning of September, the temperature dropped significantly during the night but warm and dry during the day, a perfect condition to promote the phenolic ripening (skin and seeds on the reds grapes).
