Tintero Moscato d'Asti 2015
Its color is bright straw yellow tending to golden yellow and its aroma is fresh, harmonic, fragrant, and reminiscent of several types of flowers. It feels delicately sweet, aromatic, and playful in the mouth. It matches perfectly any type of sweets and fruits and it is also excellent on its own.
In 1900 a Frenchman named Pierre Tintero set out for Piedmont in search of work. He found an opportunity to do odd jobs at a small estate where widow Rosina Cortese was struggling to handle all the work herself. Pierre, called “Pietrin” by the locals, quickly became a vital part of the estate and also fell in love with the widow, whom he married two years later. The couple continued to work the vines together and bottled their own Dolcetto for the first time just as war fell in 1914. Years later their grandson would find a stash of this vintage hidden within the walls of the cellar, certainly a precaution against ransacking troops who passed through the area.
