History and features of  Moscato d'Asti

The earliest documents mentioning the cultivation of Moscato in Piedmont are early 1300. The term “Moscato” appears in the Middle Ages with the meaning of “scented”. This name, also used in the “Moscado” meaning, comes from Late Latin “muscus” or “muscatus”. The word originally referred to an essence used in the most prestigious perfumery. The Piedmont Moscato, already produced in 1300 and 1400, saw its exploitation especially since the second half of 1500, when new historical conditions manifested itself in the region. The Moscato d’Asti Docg is produced in an artisanal way, from a hundred small wine-producing companies for a total of 15 million bottles. It is characterized by a natural sparklingness and is bottled when the wine has not yet completed the fermentation: this allows to preserve a remarkable sugar note that, coupled with its aromatic scents that recall the fresh grapes, make Moscato d’Asti Docg a unique wine in the world.
