First DOC in 1967, Moscato d'Asti wines became a DOCG in 1993. Known as the Asti winemaking process, the grapes are harvested when they reach their highest sugar content. The grapes are pressed and the juice is fermented for a few days. Fermentation is stopped by cooling and the wines are filtered and bottled.
