BackgroundArtistry, energy and ingenuity abound in this enticing sparkling Moscato from entrepreneur Sandro Bottega and his family. The basic principles Sandro holds fundamental are simple: creativity, quality and flavor are inextricably linked; discovery is a never-ending process; and imaginative presentation is essential. To pay homage to Venice, this Moscato is made only from grapes grown in the region of Veneto. The metallic bottle also protects the wine from light, preserving the wine's clean and refreshing aromas. Distilleria Bottega was founded nearly 40 years ago by master distiller Aldo Bottega, Sandro Bottega's father. The company is headquartered in Castello Roganzuolo, about 30 miles from Venice, Italy.
VinificationGrapes are hand-harvested and softly pressed in the winery. The sparkling wine is created in the Italian Charmat method, with fermentation in stainless steel tanks and a secondary fermentation in sealed tanks for 40 days.
