ETHICA WINES USA CATALOGUE

• Silvia and Giovanni Scagliola represent the fourth generation of the Scagliola family to make wine in Asti (Piedmont). • By the 1980s, the family had begun to bottle what would become one of Piedmont’s most famous sparkling wines, their now legendary Moscato d’Asti DOCG. • Superior quality Moscato d’Asti has always been the winery’s primary focus, the winery also produces a great Barbera DOCG collection. • Although not certified, the estate employs organic farming practices and no synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides are used. • A quality philosophy: healthy grape-growing techniques and low yields per hectare. • 35 hectares (85 acres) planted to vine in Asti province. • Vineyards ranging from 350 to 400 meters above sea

level (1150 – 1310 feet) in elevation. • Soil: sand, marble and limestone. • Climate: warm and temperate.

One of the things that makes the Scagliola family’s wines so distinctive is their hand-painted labels by Asti-based artists Massimo Ricci. He began showing his work in local galleries back in the 1980s and by the 1990s was already well established as one of Piedmont’s most important painters.
