Production Notes

The grapes were hand picked into wooden boxes and carefully selected. After gentle pressing, the must fermented on the skins for two to three days at low temperatures, in stainless steel tanks. The must was then separated from the skins, with fermentation halted at 5.5% volume alcohol by filtration to leave around 100g of sugar per litre. Bottling took place under pressure for a light sparkle.

Producer Information

Now owned by the Marenco family, who are Moscato and Brachetto specialists, the 11-hectare Contero estate remains one of the best producers of invigoratingly delicious Moscato d’Asti and Brachetto d’Acqui. The steep, hilly vineyards are planted on tufaceous-marl soils, in a perfect amphitheatre within the commune of Strevi (the heart of one of the best zones for Moscato in Piemonte).

The vines are superbly tended and produce fruit of stunning quality. The Brachetto has a lovely rose petal character that emerges from the aromatic, grape-scented fruit.
