Pelassa vineyard revives the forgotten Moscato Nero, with a surface of 18 hectars planted with this forgotten grape know for its intense and unique aromatic compounds.
In to the hills between Langhe and Monferrato next to Canelli city in Asti province, there is a climbing small village (Cassinasco) at 400 mt above the sea. It receives the warm and humid winds from the Ligurian sea and the dry and fresh winds from the mountains that surrounded the Piedmont. A very special micro climate that combined with a sandy soil, slightly calcareous it is ideal for the vine growing. The East exposure with an average slope of 30% captures the sun in the almost total width of the vine, favoring photosynthesis which will provide a very balanced grapes.
The principal grapes variety are white and black moscato, but not only, with an average ages of 35 years old. The planting density is 5000 vines per ha, with Guyot sytem.
Some years ago, here we conducted the first trial for the recovery of the black moscato in order to produce the moscato sparkling rosè from moscato grapes only. The test was good, beyond all expectations with great results. Research and trial, technology and traditions were combined with great, innovative quality route.
