The Acquesi range of sparkling wines comes from the house of Cuvage, very well-known for its Metodo Classico wines. The name plays tribute to the location of the winery – the small town of Acqui Terme in Piemonte. In the first half of the twentieth century, Acqui Terme was celebrated for its Liberty style (the Italian version of Art Nouveau), and its ideals of elegance, joy and ornamental detail, and we find this style reflected and relaunched in the beautiful, intricate design of the bottles. These bottles are an absolute show-stopper and a true reflection of the quality and elegance of the wines themselves.
The Acquesi Moscato d’Asti last year broke records when it won three trophies and was declared Best Aromatic Sparkling Wine in the Word at the 2019 Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships in London. As the owners themselves declare –
“It is an honour for us to receive this award, since it is an important recognition not only for our company but also for the whole Piedmont region, and for Italy too. It is a tribute to an ancient name that now deserves to be revamped.”
