…cinnamon, wild berries, sage, dried rose and pepper hints. Aromatic, velvety, long-lasting.
Our forefathers told us that the Moscato vineyard has to suffer a little to give its best and also the production regulations do not provide for vines to be watered, so that roots are forced to go deeper and, in this way, they produce grapes with a complex taste, which is intimately connected with the geological peculiarities.
Moscato di Scanzo is one of the smallest DOCG in Italy (Italian denomination for PDO) and attests the wine produced on the hill in Scanzorosciate (a total of 31 hectares).
Cultivation dates back to pre-Roman times.
“Moscadello” grape variety – probably with a Middle-Eastern or Egyptian origin – first appeared in the Fourteenth century in Alberico da Rosciate will; since then up until now, written records bred and during the Nineteenth century it reached the European courts, strengthening its reputation of excellent wine. During the last decades, an increase in production and a qualitative evolution were witnessed.
