About Paolo Saracco
Paolo Saracco Facts
Up in the hills surrounding Castiglione Tinella, a stunning view of the Alps provides a backdrop for Paolo Saracco's Moscato. Planted in a limestone soil coursing with sandy veins, the grapes are harvested individually, bunch by bunch. Low yields and extreme care result in fresh, bright, racy Moscato; some of the most delicate and filigreed examples made, with wonderful elegance, balance and pristine fruit flavor. Slide over to the adjacent valley and you'll find Saracco's Pino Nero (Pinot Noir to most of us). Saracco began with this variety in the late '90s and has found that the climate and soil here suit the fickle grape. The finished wines combine familiar Burgundian characteristics -- a red berry bouquet, round body and complex structure -- with elements unique to the Piedmont terroir.
