La Caliera is the soul of the Borgo Maragliano enterprise. The name 'La Caliera' has been given as a tribute to a woman who lived for a long time in a house on the boundaries of the vineyard property. The remembrance of a generous and warm heart and a noble character is reflected in these old vineyards whose maturity produces a rich grape harvest.

Winemaking Notes: After the harvest, the Moscato is softly pressed in a pneumatic press. The juice is cold macerated to reduce fermentation while extracting aromatics. It is filtered and then put into a special tank that retains the carbon dioxide while heating the product to a temperature of 15°C. The purpose of this procedure is to favor the fermentation process which will reach 5% volume of alcohol. The wine is cooled to stop fermentation.

Tasting Notes: La Caliera Moscato d'Asti is full-bodied, velvety and intense. It exhibits a fragrance of candied fruit, violets and acacia flowers.

    The Borgo Maragliano 2019 Moscato d'Asti La Caliera is a creamy and frothy sparkling wine to pair with dried biscuits or almond cookies. In addition to the overtly floral and tropical aromas of the bouquet, this Moscato d'Asti tastes especially sweet, sugary and peachy. This wine shows less of the wild sage, star jasmine and crushed sea shell that you typically get in this popular category of Italian dessert wine.
