‘A Cengia – IGT Veneto Moscato Secco

‘A Cengia – IGT Veneto Moscato Secco

Moscato Secco IGT Veneto ‘A Cengia is the most curious of the white wines of the Zanovello selections, thanks to its distinct aromaticity and the strong flavour of the Moscato grapes. A good glass of ‘A Cengia will be an unexpected surprise to discover with every sip: a journey through the history of the land and the passion of such a noble job as that of the vine-dresser.

It is on the slopes of the Euganean Hills and on the terraces carved out by farmers over centuries of hard work that we cultivate our Moscato Bianco Secco with care and professionalism. The excellent sun exposure and the richness of the soils allow us to obtain a white wine characterised by the dynamism of unmistakable aromas and an intense flavour. The nose opens to the floral bouquet of white and yellow flowers, evolving into hints of ripe white-fleshed fruit and aromatic herbs, recalling the notes of a sweet Muscat, but revealing its dry nature with a perfect balance of acid and savoury on the palate.

Pairings with our Moscato Secco
Our ‘A Cengia is a dry and crisp Moscato Bianco that evolves with time, revealing an attractive and original aromatic complexity. Its solid mineral structure allows for challenging pairings: it is ideal with salmon, eggs and asparagus, first courses with wild herbs, as well as meat or fish tartare. Serve at around 12-14°C.

History of Moscato Secco ‘A Cengia
Records of Moscato Bianco cultivation in Veneto date back to the 13th century.
In the 1980s, Franco Zanovello, a passionate innovator, was among the first to experiment with a dry version with the aim of producing a wine that was intense, complex and also long-lived. We still experiment a great deal with this wine today, striving to obtain an increasingly curious and elegant product, capable of combining the aromatic dowry with a mineral and fresh sip.
