2008 San Giuliano Moscato d'Asti (Previously $14.99)

SKU #1057988

San Giuliano is a family owned estate, headed by Giulio Pastura and his wife, Mariella, who do nearly all the winemaking and vineyard work themselves. The vineyard itself has been intricately cultivated, consisting of 18 acres of Moscato, Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Arneis and Brachetto in the zones of Roero, Asti, Neive and Barbaresco. Opportunely placed to benefit from excellent exposure to southern sunlight and glancing breezes, the vines are robust and distinctive, ranging from 15-25 years-old. The wines of the San Giuliano estate are expressive of the passion and deep personal involvement that goes into their creation. Fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 10 days, this Moscato was released after 4-6 weeks to maximize the fresh, fruity character. Overwhelmingly aromatic showing fresh, fruit flavors. Sweet with subtle effervescence on the palate.

Tasty, tasty juice. Perfect for a summer pool party or just chillin on the patio after a long day of work. Get nuts and drink it out of a pint glass the heck with the fancy wine glasses.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.

Sub-Region:

Piedmont

- Piedmont is in the Northwestern region of Italy, bordering France and Switzerland. Piedmont is predominantly a plain where the water flows from the Swiss and French Alps to form the headwaters of the Po river. The major wine producing areas are in the southern portion of the region in the hills known as the "Langhe". Here the people speak a dialect that is 1/3 French and 2/3 Italian that portrays their historical roots. Their cuisine is one of the most creative and interesting in Italy. Nebbiolo is the King grape here, producing Barolo and Barbaresco. In addition, the Barbera and Dolcetto are the workhorse grapes that produce the largest quantity of wine. Piedmont is predominantly a red wine producing area. There are a few whites made in Piedmont, and the Moscato grape produces a large volume of sweet, semi-sweet and sparkling wines as well.
