VINIFICATION
PRESENTATION

White Moscato grapes are soft-pressed immediately following the harvest to extract the free-run must. Fermentation is carried out in pressure tanks at 15-16° C until alcohol by volume reaches 4-5% and approximately 2 bars of pressure. The wine is cooled to 0° C to halt fermentation. The wine is then filtered and ready for bottling.

Available format: 0.75 l
Alcohol content 4.5-5% by volume 
Straw-yellow colour with gold highlights, occasionally with a pale green tinge. Unique nose with sage, lemon, linden, and acacia notes;  fruit sensations such as apricot and peach. Enjoy its sweet yet tart disposition.

WHEN
HOW

Crisp and young to maintain its bead and heady perfumes. And if laid down for a few years?
It develops the intriguing notes of a passito wine

Store in a dark, dry place at constant temperature, below 20° C. Serve at 6°-8° C, in a wide-mouthed champagne coupe to conserve the showy flourish of its nose.

CLASSIC PAIRING
UNUSUAL PAIRING

A sweet wine calls for a sweet pairing. Fruit tarts, hazelnut tart with zabaglione, traditional dove-shaped Easter cake or panettone? 
The choice is yours. You could sip it after a summer dinner or pour it over a fresh fruit salad

Always paired with desserts, try it also with or on top 
of ice cream. Be intrepid and try it with oysters or spicy samosas for a daring aperitif.
