Dragon is a unique white blend from the Langhe. Originally produced by Luigi Baudana during the 1980’s with Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, it has evolved to embrace Nascetta, the most exciting white heirloom varietal of the Langhe, and a tiny amount of Riesling.
Brilliant pale straw colour with a subtle tinge of green around the edges and watery hue. Elevated aromas of lime and fresh pears meet up with notions of green apple, light herbs and minerals. Zippy lime and green apple flavours show excellent intensity over a dash of mandarin, infusions of fresh herbs and stony mineral characters. Finishes dry and crisp with a lengthy conclusion that’s quite moreish.
Brilliant water like colour with a faint tinge of pale straw to the edges. Intensely aromatic, the nose sees grape juice, musk, tropical elements and faint rosewater like notes drift from the glass. Light and airy with a delicate but persistent spritz providing the effervescence, grapey flavours are followed by sweet mango, musk and orange blossom infusions. Vibrant, refreshingly sweet finish with a spritely medium length aftertaste.

Luminous pale straw-green with golden tinges. Captivating aromas of orange blossom, lemon verbena, vanilla, sage and ripe grapefruit nectar. Dense, juicy and suave, presenting a multilayered, complex set of flavors similar to the aromas. The finish is very long, resonating with a floral topnote and delightful vibrancy. Outstanding, concentrated, complex and very pure Moscato d'Asti. Drink 2018-2026.

Pours with a light cloudy mousse, delicate spritz and a pale straw/pale gold colour. Floral lychee like scents with grapey sultana, sherbet and citrus notes also present. Possessing a light effervescence the palate possesses sweet grapey sultana and tropical fruit flavours with a burst of lemon sherbet on the refreshing finish. Aftertaste of sweet grapey sultana characters, tropical fruits and sherbet. Great summer drinking.
