Asti DOCG: Vines

The Asti DOCG is a single varietal wine, and therefore can be made exclusively by Moscato grapes

It is a fairly vigorous and prefers marly soil with plenty of limestone, interspersed with banks of sand and sandstone. It is prone to mildew infection and ripens in mid September. The bunch is fairly compact, and cylinder or cone shaped. The grapes are round, with a golden colour that can become amber when they are exposed to the sun. you can read more about Moscato here.
