Tasting Notes

This intensely perfumed, super-fine Moscato is drawn from an amphitheatre of sandy, chalky slopes that circle Sandro Boido’s winery. Boido’s hand-tended, organically managed vines here average around 30 years of age. This area has long been recognised as one of Moscato d'Asti’s most prized terroirs. The steep, chalky vineyards that dominate the Santo Stefano Belbo commune are prized for tempering Moscato’s varietal heady fruits with freshness, mineral energy and perfume. Lumine may be Ca’ d'Gal’s entry Moscato but it always a striking, pulpy and mouth-watering wine of wonderful freshness, heady perfume and surprising complexity. The 2020 is no exception, with a lifted, heady perfume of yellow and white flowers, crystalline stone fruits, candied lemon rind, ripe apple and fresh herbal notes. Lumine means ‘to illuminate’, and this exceptional Moscato does just that across the palate with layers of perfumed, silky fruit, a juicy, sorbet-like, chalky freshness and a precise finish. It’s an exceptional Moscato that’s very fairly priced vis-à-vis the quality.

Winemakers Note

Our Moscato d’Asti Lumine wine is produced from our estate vineyards that are between 20 to 35 years old. The production area is quite large, so there are different compositions of soil, which has led us to work harder to obtain lower yields and therefore achieve a higher quality. The optimal balance between total sugars and proper acidity, is an important decision that we make every year to choose the right time to harvest and allows us to make a fresh Moscato with an intense bouquet that is also delicate and elegant. Aromas of acacia accompany scents of sage, rosemary and musk, the fruitiness that is perfect on the palate with a final note of green apple, peach and apricot . With lively bubbles that are never aggressive, it has a perfect balance of sweetness and freshness. Moscato accompanies the classic desserts made with hazelnuts, fruit tarts and cream but is also for perfect for adding a lovely sparkle to a bowl of mixed berries or a fruit salad. Here as well, thanks to our memories, we can also suggest an unusual yet traditional combination with a slice of salami or rustic bread spread with a strong cheese like Bruss or gorgonzola.
