To produce Oddero Cascina Fiori Moscato d'Asti the harvest is performed manually. Once in the winery, it is then destemmed, squeezed and vatted so that the must macerates cold with the skins for about 12 hours to extract aromatic compounds. It is then pressed and the must is cleaned by cold decanting for another 48 hours. The must then ferments in stainless steel tanks, and at mid-fermentation it is cold-halted to preserve part of its sugars. It is bottled at two moments, one in November and another at the end of February, and sometimes a third time in April. A total of 15,000 bottles are produced.
Oddero Cascina Fiori Moscato d'Asti is a sweet wine with a fine bubble, intense aromas and freshness in the mouth.
