In the glass, this wine is bright yellow with a fine and long-lasting mousse. It opens with fresh and intense grape aromas, accompanied by notes of sage. On the palate, it has a refreshing acidity to balance the natural sweetness of this wine. The typical aroma of Moscato grapes dominates the palate, and it has a very long and delicious finish.

The Moscato grapes were sourced from several vineyard sites in Serralunga d'Alba, situated at an altitude of 320-340 metres above sea level on the western edge of the Moscato d'Asti DOCG zone. The soil is composed predominantly of limestone. The vines are Guyot-trained and are planted at densities of 5,500 vines per hectare. They range in age from 18-22 years old. The average yield is eight tonnes per hectare.

This 23 hectare estate has been in the Massolino family since 1896. In recent years, the style of the wines has undergone a subtle transformation. Winemaker Franco Massolino has done a wonderful job of marrying change with a respect for tradition, something that sets Massolino apart from many of the younger producers in Barolo today. The vineyards, with vines up to 60 years old, are in the commune of Serralunga d’Alba
