The grapes to produce the Moscato d’Asti di Strevi DOCG Contero were hand harvested in wooden boxes. Then they were gently pressed and fermented at low temperatures to maximize the fragrance. During fermentation the must was filtered several times. The wine was drawn from the vat with an alcohol content of 5.5%, then stabilized before being bottled under pressure to maintain a slight sparkle.
The Val Contero vineyards are situated in a perfect amphitheatre in Strevi, the heart of one of the best zones for Moscato in Piemonte. The vineyards are superbly tended and produce fruit of stunning quality. The vines are Guyot trained with 4,800 vines planted per hectare. They are planted on steep tufaceous-marl hills with sandstone layers.
