Cà ed Balos Moscato d’Asti
Cà ed Balos take great care of their vineyards, using green manure techniques and pruning on young wood in order to maintain healthy and strong vines. Moscato grapes are picked and softly pressed as quickly as possible to preserve light floral aromas, then fermented at a controlled temperature in pressurised stainless steel tanks. The Asti method is similar therefore to making Prosecco: the carbon dioxide by-product of fermentation being captured in the pressurised tanks. At around 5% alcohol the wine is chilled to a very low temperature: the yeasts die and the fermentation stops, resulting in a sweet sparkling wine.
