Story

From Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant:

Moscato d’Asti Sorì Gramella:

  • This is the only producer to bottle this striking single-vineyard, limestone amphitheater commercially
  • Grapes harvested and pressed, then kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation
  • Fermentation is allowed to begin only when an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible
  • No malolactic fermentation
  • “Sorì” in Piedmontese indicates the south-facing slope of a hill. Gramella is the name of the area that Tintero grows his grapes.
  • 110 g/L residual sugar
