The Moscato d’Asti DOCG Tenimenti Ca’ Bianca is a sweet wine made entirely from Moscato Bianco grapes, harvested slightly overripe. The vinification process starts from an alcoholic fermentation carried out in an autoclave, which, undergoing a stop due to cooling, leaves a pleasant residual sugar in the must, which can also be found in the final product.
“Casa Vinicola Ca’ Bianca” opened in 1952, in the Alessandria area of the Alto Monferrato, which is now part of the small municipality of Alice Bel Colle, a stone’s throw from Acqui Terme.The winery name was inspired by the local name of this area “al ca’ bianche”. Headquarters are now in the Cascina Spagna, a farmstead acquired in the 1980s and whose origins are rooted in history, at a time when the Spanish were at war with France and the Venetian Republic, in the 1620s. Its high-hill position made it a strategic site offering an overview for everyone travelling across the entire valley beneath.In August 1997, the estate grew to include the Cascina Polsino farm of about nine hectares under vine, in a single plot of prized terrain in the estate. Tenimenti Ca’ Bianca occupies an area in excess of 24 hectares in a single plot, set around the cellars, and the central viewpoint offers a stunning panorama. The lands around the estate are great wine country and were formed thirteen million years ago, in the Miocene period, on the sandy bed of a quite shallow ancient sea.
