The Santa Vittoria estate is perched on a steep hill on the left bank of the Tanaro river, overlooking the neighboring Langhe and dominating the valley below. Its tower dates back to 1386, and it stands in the eponymous village of Santa Vittoria d’Alba. Here, in soils of marine origin, consisting mainly of sand and calcareous sandstone, vineyards are ideal for producing white wines that are fruity, aromatic, and elegant. Since 2016, when renowned enologist Giorgia Lavagna joined Santa Vittoria, the winery has vinified, refined, and bottled its prestigious wines in their new cellars in Serralunga d’Alba.
Santa Vittoria’s Moscato d’Asti is a distinctly fruit-forward wine, with an intense nose of yellow peach, orange flowers, sage, musk, and honey, and is sustained on the palate by a delightful sparkle and discreet acidity. A very appealing drink on its own, it is also the ideal wine to be served with many kinds of sweets, particularly ones with a fine, delicate flavor. The perfect end to any meal with cake and pastries.
