The Moscato grapes for ‘P’ Nivole are from the best exposed vineyards of Canelli, a region of Asti renowned for centuries as being an ideal microclimate for growing Moscato. They ripen earliest and are the first to be harvested, which for Moscato means a more fragrant and flavorful wine. Moscato grapes lose their aromatics the longer they stay on the vine. The ‘P’ stands for “primo” or first for these first-harvested grapes.

Harvest Note
The 2022 vintage was a challenging one. Overall it was warm and dry, with high temperatures and a long summer with scarce rain. The water shortage was so severe that the Regione Piemonte issued a waiver to allow vineyard irrigation. Harvest was an early one, with grapes that revealed excellent qualities.
Tasting Note
A bright golden yellow, this fragrant Moscato from Canelli has floral aromas with notes of mango, passion fruit, and lime zest. It is creamy with fine bubbles and a crisp finish.
