Wine Maker Notes
Provincia di Pavia is located in the southwest corner of the Lombardy Region. It is the top wine producing area in the Lombardy Region. Pavia borders the famed Asti region, making it a perfect area to grow the Moscato grape.After harvest is complete in late September, the de-stemmed grapes are pressed and the grape must is stored in temperature controlled tanks throughout the year at a temperature of 32° F until fermentation and bottling is required. This guarantees a fresh, bright wine for every bottling throughout the year.In preparation for bottling the grape must is allowed to naturally heat to a temperature of 65° F. As the must warms, fermentation begins; slowly turning the grape must into wine. Fermentation takes place in a pressurized tank prohibiting the natural CO 2 gas that is produced during fermentation to escape. Once the desired alcohol and pressure level is obtained the process is halted and the wine is filtered and bottled. This unique wine making process produces a lusciously sweet wine in the Frizzante (soft bubbles) style.
