Ezio Cerruti has seven hectares of vines surrounding his home in the commune of Castiglione Tinella, about halfway between Asti and the Langhe.  Principally, Ezio works with just one grape. His Moscato vines are up to 60 years old and planted on steep slopes about 400 metres above sea level. Unusually for the area, they are worked organically and the long grass and wildflowers between the rows here stand in stark contrast to the more draconian setups nearby.

In the cellar Ezio is a perfectionist, an introverted guy who is happiest growing grapes, making wine and doing things the right way. Whether sparkling, dry or sweet, when you open a bottle from Ezio, you’ll find a lively wine of rare harmony, where fruit, flowers, salt and spice intertwine.

This has to be our favourite sparkling wine for the season. Moscato that begins fermentation in concrete, before being put into a bottle with some grape must Ezio keeps aside from the same harvest. The lees remain in the bottle making for a textural, vibrant col fondo with gorgeous aromatics and a dry, chalky finish.
