This particular wine is made from aromatic Moscato bianco grapes, a grape variety which is very popular in southern Piedmont, produced in Loazzolo, a small borough in the Asti Langa district. In the high hills, in small, steep and well-exposed plots of land, the Moscato grapes ripen successfully when tended with meticulous care, and are then left on the vines to wither gradually. This process creates an extremely limited quantity of highly coveted sweet wine, which, after two years in the cellar, can be labelled Loazzolo.
