Tasting Notes: We can't recommend this enough - a beautifully balanced dessert wine, lovingly crafted, and an absolute steal! A nose of intense lemon meringue pie, marmalade, hard caramel and toffee apple. The palate has lots of ripe apricot and acacia honey characters with a core of homemade lemon curd running through to the long, fresh and lingering citrus finish.

Producer Details: This exceptional estate in the Monferrato hills was bought by Araldica in 1999. After 15 years of replanting, 60 hectares of the 102 have now been reclaimed and are in full production. The warmer, southwest facing slopes are used to grow Barbera, Merlot and Cabernet while those facing northeast give fresher growing conditions, ideal for aromatic varietals such as Brachetto and Moscato as well as Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. The 'Il Cascinone' range is produced with grapes sourced from Araldica’s most prized vineyards, both on the estate itself and from other selected sites. Il Cascinone aim to make expressive, yet uncomplicated wines from good quality grapes. Attention to detail ensures the production of good quality wines.

In The Vineyard: Palazzina vineyard is on the Il Cascinone estate. Vine yield is 3000 litres per hectare. The fruit is hand harvested from 17 to 20 October (about one month later than the usual Moscato harvest).

In The Winery: The grapes are dried on racks for 45 days. During this time 40% of the fruit's weight is lost by water evaporation. In mid-December the whole bunches are pressed and then a slow fermentation is undertaken in oak barrels for 2 months followed by 12 months ageing prior to bottling.
