Typical Asti aromas of fresh juicy grapes and yeasty hints. A true tingle on the palate leads into a fresh, light-bodied sparkling wine. Lovely grape flavours and sweetness balanced by crisp citrus fruit.
History
Producer Details
Araldica is Piemonte's largest and most progressive co-operative yet retains a small, family run company feel, thanks to the inspired guidance of winemaker/manager Claudio Manera (whose father Livio was the co-op's first winemaker in the fifties) and his wife Lella, also a winemaker and in charge of Quality Control.
Regional Information
Heading north and east from Alba, one enters the hill-rich DOC zone of Asti, south of the town of Asti itself. The name on its own is used only for the well-known sweet sparkling wine, Asti Spumante. The grapes for Araldica Asti Spumante are cultivated in vineyards situated in the Monferrato hills in the South of the province of Asti.
Current Vintage

Vinification Details

Light, delicate and yet surprisingly big flavours

With Asti Martini seeming to have cornered the market for a very long time I have been looking for another Asti Spumante to try. Whilst Asti Martini is nice it has bubbles that feel to me a little harsh on my palate, whereas the Asti Spumante of my (long gone!) earlier years had a much more refined, gentle fizz a quality this Asti is on its way to equal. I find it has an almost lemon-like initial taste which begins slightly sharp but mellows and sweetens by the time the initial hit fades, developing something similar in flavour to a not-too-sweet galia melon before the more traditional grape based flavour takes over to finish. Only 7% in alcohol and medium sweet I believe it an ideal choice for younger adults, or those new to wine drinking as there are no sharp surprises to test the tastebuds (screwing up ones face as if sucking a lemon isnt a good look if trying to impress!), or for those just preferring less alcohol in their diet but not wanting to give up alcohol completely.
