Crushed & Cured
“CÀ ED BALOS”, Moscato D'Asti DOCG, 2022
Straw yellow, sweet, pleasantly acidulous, with delicate and persistent aroma. The bouquet is intense with loads of fresh floral fruits such as peach, orange, elder and honey and musk flavour.
The grapes are softly pressed, then the must is placed in a steel pressure tank, where the fermentation process takes place at a controlled temperature. The purification and filtration step follows. The fermentation process is then stopped in advance producing a light and lively sparkling wine with high residual sugar content and a low alcohol level.
Cà ed Balos is a small family-owned winery with 6.5 hectares of vineyards in Castiglione Tinella in the Langhe, restored by Renata Bonacina and her husband in the 1990s, reviving Moscato d'Asti production there since 2008. The vines are farmed sustainably and are currently under organic conversion, long using 'green manure' to reduce further any need for chemicals. Grapes are carefully selected during numerous passages, picked by hand and whittled down further to obtain only the very healthiest for the finished wines. Renata and her team balance experimental technology with traditional methods, making properly brilliant Moscato d'Asti that cannot fail to put a smile on your face.
