 Vietti 2019 'Cascinetta Vietti' Moscato d’Asti, Asti, Piedmont, Italy

The Vietti winery, now managed by the family’s fifth generation, is based in the small medieval village of Castiglione Falletto, the heart of Piedmont’s famous “Langhe” wine region. Here the Currado family carefully and patiently handcrafts lauded wines that are the result of a unique combination of sun and soil. Although the family has made wine for two centuries, the first Vietti-labeled wines were produced by third-generation Mario, who transformed the family’s farm into a grape growing winery. In 1952 Alfredo Currado married Mario’s daughter Luciana and made a name for Vietti’s single-vineyard Barbera and Barolo.

  • Winemaker:  Luca Currado Vietti
  • Farming: Organic
  • Grape Varieties: Moscato Bianco
  • Terroir: Calcarous soil in the rolling, foggy hills of Asti, Piemonte
  • Vinification: The grapes are selected from small vineyards located in Castiglione Tinella. The vineyards are planted with 4,500 vines per hectare, which are almost 40 years old. Only the best Moscato grapes with extended maturation are used for the Cascinetta. The grapes are crushed, pressed and naturally clarified. Must is kept without sulfites in a cold storage, at low temperature in order to naturally prevent fermentation. Before the bottling, native yeast is reintroduced and temperature is increased to 12°-14° C. Alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel pressured tanks to preserve natural CO2 from the fermentation. The fermentation is stopped at 5% Alc. by reducing again the temperature. There is no malolactic fermentation to preserves acidity, varietal fruit character and freshness
