This wine comes from the intuition and the desire to test the Moscato grapes from the vineyards of Valdivilla: small clusters, very healthy, patiently hung in the sun by Rosalba (hence the name "Albarosa"). 

The grapes are dried on selected rows sheltered from the rain, then gentle pressed: a cold maceration of the grapes for two days follows. The must is cleanup with filtra- tion, and then the fermentation at a controlled temperature of 16 ° C starts. When it reached about 2% alcohol, you put the product in barrels where it finishes the fermentation. The length of the fermentation and of the aging in oak barrels depends on the year: usually it lasts for 5-6 months. At the end, it is put in stainless steel tanks for 2 months for a new aging, then the wine is cleaned and put into sterilized bottles.
