Scrapona

Scrapona Moscato d'Asti DOCG

Marenco produces a finely balanced moscato, full-on sweet while still finishing crisp and clean. There’s refinement and lift to its spicy grape flavors. Chill it for melon and prosciutto. - Joshua Greene

Vinification Notes

100 % Moscato Bianco grapes from the Scrapona vineyard in the  Bagnario Valley, Strevi. The must obtained from the pressing of the grapes is stored at low temperatures until it is fermented in temperature-controlled pressurized tanks where an alcohol content of 5.5% is reached and re-fermentation takes place. Following filtration and stabilization, it is then bottled at a low temperature to facilitate its preservation and natural vivacity.

Tasting Notes

Golden yellow, sweet aromatic wine with fine,  elegant perlage. Intense and persistent nose with strong hints of citrus, honey, lime and then again peach, sage, and orange blossom. Flavor is fresh, sweet, aromatic, persistent and elegant like the grapes it comes from.
A welcome drink to relax with any time as well as an interesting aperitif paired with vegetables fried in batter. Ideal with desserts and baked goods, hazelnut specialties,  traditional Christmas cakes and panettone, fruit salad, macaroons, custard, and zabaglione.

Serve at 8-10° C at time of uncorking

Available in 0,375 lt - 0,75 lt  bottles and 1,500 lt. magnums

Vineyards

Scarpona is the best vineyard in Strevi’s prestigious Bagnario Valley, with south-westerly exposure, 300 masl, marl and limestone terrain. 6.5 hectares of vineyards are cultivated using the most modern viticulture practices which aim for low yields obtained through short pruning, thinning and grassing, combined with a strict respect for the environment. A multi-clonal vineyard where five different clones have been planted, including the Marenco clone from our original vines which always produced Moscato of exceptional quality.

The name Scrapona derives from the dialect "scrapare" meaning to climb, referring to the steepness of the hillside ... since the best vineyards are always those most difficult to work.
