THE LAND OF ASTI
Peaceful, generous places which are at the same time steep, harsh and tough. A land of unforgettable nuances. Hills to which man had to adapt, respecting their deepest essence to be rewarded with their precious fruits. The territories of the Moscato bianco grapes where Asti docg and Moscato d’Asti docg are made offer unique landscapes that will remain indelibly engraved in the memory of the visitor.
The area was outlined in 1932 and includes 52 municipalities in the provinces of Alessandria, Asti and Cuneo. The total surface area of Moscato bianco vineyards is of about 9,700 hectares, and over 4,000 wine growers and makers are involved in the production. What makes these places so fascinating is their variety: the hills of the Langhe region are stretched out and long with fairly steep slopes. The hills of Monferrato are instead rounder and softer on the eye. Two different landscapes where nothing is repeated. Where life thrives in neat rows of vines, tended by hand as they have always been. Where the colours change with the change of seasons, framed by the Alps and a never-ending horizon. Where every detail is amazing and remains in the heart, comforting it forever.
