Sweet Moscato

Caposaldo

Sweet Moscato

Region: Italy / Lombardy
Grapes: 100% Moscato Bianco

The grapes grow on the cool hilltops of northern Italy’s Lombardy region, where the northern-lying Alps shield the low-yielding hillside vineyards from harsh weather and the 20-year-old Guyot-trained vines benefit from a superb blend of white marl and chalky soils. During harvest, the fruit is carefully handpicked.

tasting note

Bright gold in color, this sweet wine delivers intense pear, peach and spice aromas and flavors, and fresh, vivacious bubbles.

food pairing

Enjoy with fruit pies and tarts, fruit cobblers or fresh strawberries, peaches or raspberries.
