Prunotto Moscato d’Asti is made from the White Canelli Moscato grape variety, a.k.a. Muscat blanc à Petits Grains. It is a sweet and lightly sparkling white wine relatively low in alchohol at around 5% abv. The Muscat grapes for the Prunotto Moscato d’Asti are sourced from vineyards in Canelli and Treiso situated on calcareous soils. The grapes are picked by hand before a light pressing. The juice is then fermented until the desired level of alcohol is achieved (in this case 5% abv) before fermentation is stopped by refrigeration. This process leaves a lot of natural sweetness in the wine, rather than converting it to alcohol, and thus produces a naturally sweet wine, with a gentle sparkle. After the fermentation the wine is fined, filtered and bottled.
