Asti Region, Italy

 

Cara Mia is Italian for “My Dear”, a nod to this wine’s romantic theme.  Cara Mia Moscato is produced by Oscar Bosio, a third-generation owner of prime Moscato vineyards in Northern Italy. He runs the La Bruciata Vineyard, in the town of Valdivilla, in the rolling hills of Asti, (thus the “d’Asti”), famous for producing this world class wine. At an elevation of 420 meters, this region is ideal for growing the aromatic and delicate Moscato grapes used in many fine Italian wines. The family farm specializes in the growing of Moscato grapes, devoting some seventeen hectares to their cultivation.
