Paolo Saracco

This renowned winery run by Paolo Saracco is based in the village of Castiglione Tinella in an area called the Langhe Astigiane. It is a zone widely regarded as the prime area for the production of Moscato d’Asti, the unique wine consisting of partially fermented must. The vines stand in chalky marl soil mixed with sand where the White Muscat grape has been growing since ancient times. Paolo manages all aspects of the production and cultivation of the property’s 50 hectares to produce nearly 400,000 bottles, almost all of which is Moscato.

This remarkable wine displays a mature nose of white peaches and fresh grapes and a creamy sweetness with lively citrus acidity; perfect as an aperitif, at the end of the meal or simply on its own. Moscato d’Asti deserves to be recognized as one of the world’s greatest wines, if simply for its capability to deliver pure sensory pleasure.

Producer Fact SheetDetails

"Saracco’s wine is different, as he is, by far, the best producer of Moscato d’Asti. Think of him as you would the DRC or Château Latour equivalent of Moscato d’Asti." Yumi Liu, 'Paolo Saracco: The Rolls-Royce of Moscato D’Asti Wines', Terroir Sense (July 2023)

(Moscato d'Asti 2021) "This lovely, sweet sparkler opens with heady aromas of yellow stone fruit, spring blossoms and wild aromatic herbs. The savory palate delivers ripe apricot, creamy yellow peach, rosemary and sage. Crisp acidity not only keeps it focused and tangy, but seamlessly balances the sweetness so it's never cloying but always bright and racy. A refined, foaming mousse provides lots of finesse.
