“Romano Dogliotti reliably produces excellent, fragrant Moscato D’Asti, with a reliable and constant quality.”
The soils in Piemonte are influenced by their location within the mountain. The top of the hills are poor and essentially based on alluvial deposits. The lower part of the mountain is made up of clay-limestone soil with a variable proportion of sand, which often determines the degree of finesse in the wines. Piedmont sits at the foot of the Western Alps which encircle the best sites around the cities of Alba and Asti - made up with calcareous marl and sandstone.
A Passionate Lineage
In the 1940's, Redento Dogliotti was growing Muscat grapes in the town of Castiglione Tinella and selling their juice to large producers of Moscato wine. His son, Romano, saw potential in the vineyard and in the late 70's, decided to produce Moscato D’Asti under his own label. Romano is one of a handful of pioneer winemakers that made the history of Moscato d’Asti by also being one of the first small producers bottling his production. Now, with the help of his sons, they produce one of the very best examples of Moscato d'Asti with an incredible value for money ratio.
