Lunatico Moscato d'Asti
Cascina San Lorenzo is a project involving Enrico Rivetto, Alessio Povero and Charles Lazzara (President of Volio). The line was created in honor of Charles Lazzara’s first child, Lorenzo, born in 2014. Coincidentally, San Lorenzo is also the name of the patron Saint of Alba, a famous winemaking region where both Enrico and Alessio have wineries of high regard. The idea behind this line of wines is to offer extremely high-quality varietal wines from the North of Italy at exceptional pricing using estate grown grapes on young vines between the two estates.
All you love about Moscato… pear pulp, citrus, tropical fruit and an off-dry sweetness that sits lightly in the mouth before disappearing with the bubbles.
