Piemonte Moscato Passito D.O.C.
Moscato Passito Doc “Hiver”: The Passito of Brothers’ Bertolino born from a selection of ripe grapes almost harvested in winter period. It has a dark straw colour with amber reflections that immediately reveals wine consistency. It is typified by a fine and intense nose with enticing scent. The bouquet offers a sequence of dried fruit aromas that reminds of fig, apricot and orange peel with sweet notes of icing sugar and honey. Extremely persistent to the palate, it is not sickly-sweet, as the strong sugary residual is properly balanced with acidity.
Vinification: Muscat grapes are harvested at the end of September, late in autumn when grapes are over ripened and begin to wither on the plant. Once harvested, grapes are put on straw mats to dry in the Estate farmhouse. Immediately after pressing, the most is poured into oak barriques for fermentation.
