Moscato Rosa DOC

100% Moscato Rosa. Moscato Rosa has a bright ruby red color, with an intensely aromatic nose featuring rose, cloves, cinnamon and orange peel. On the palate, it is fascinating, complex and elegant — lively and perfectly balanced between the acidity, sweetness and tannins.

“Since its foundation in 1880, the winery has focused on the quality of the grapes and bringing out the best in them. Special attention has always been given to using the minimum and most selective chemical substances during cultivation and fertilization.”
