This wine is delicate ruby red in colour. The rich, persistent mousse is accompanied by bright aromas of roses and raspberries. The slightly sweet, aromatic palate has a typical bittersweet note on the finish.
Now owned by the Marenco family, who are Moscato and Brachetto specialists, the 11 hectare Contero estate remains one of the best producers of invigoratingly delicious Moscato d’Asti and Brachetto d’Acqui. The vineyards are situated on steep hills, on tufaceous-marl soils, in a perfect amphitheatre in the commune of Strevi (the heart of one of the best zones for Moscato in Piemonte).
The vines are superbly tended and produce fruit of stunning quality. The Moscato is lifted, fresh and frothing, while the Brachetto has a lovely rose petal character that emerges from the aromatic, grape-scented fruit.
