Fontanafredda, Asti DOCG NV - September 2021 Decanter review
The Fontanafredda estate was bought in 1858 by Vittorio Emanuele II as a gift to his mistress Rosa Vercellana, also known as "La bela Rosin". Later, it was handed down to their children, Maria Vittoria and Emanuele Alberto, Count of Mirafiori and Fontanafredda. After several changes of ownership Fontanafredda is once again in the hands of Piedmont natives. In 2017 Fontanafredda was named “European Winery of the Year” by the prestigious American magazine Wine Enthusiast.
Relying on the most advanced models for sustainable agriculture (organic, integrated and biodynamic), they have adopted the agricultural disciplinary guidelines of Vino Libero which defines the vineyard-cultivation techniques they use whilst striving to both reduce the environmental impact and safeguard human health.
This wine is 100% Moscato Bianco.

Fontanafredda Asti DOCG NV - fiche technique
An aromatic, sparkling wine with notes of musk, sage and honey on the nose and a taste of just picked grapes. Very enjoyable at any time, it is also a perfect match for many sweets, especially fine, delicately-flavoured desserts. Outstanding with fruit.
