This precious passito wine is obtained from the homonymous autochthonous variety from our 30-year-old vines on the Scanzorosciate hills. Bunches are exclusively hand-selected and dried for at least 40 days in a dedicated room with constant temperature and humidity. After that, the vinification with a long pomace maceration, a refinement in steel tanks for 24 months and a suitable rest in bottle. Perfumes are very complex, with cinnamon, wild berries, sage, dried rose and pepper hints. Taste is aromatic, velvety and long-lasting.
Moscato di Scanzo is the smallest DOCG in Italy
Moscato di Scanzo DOGC includes only the hills of Scanzorosciate, a total of 31 hectares. The grape variety, probably with a Middle-Eastern or Egyptian origin, evolved thank to the thousand-year winemaking practice on the Sass de Lüna hills, a particular grey-light-bluish hard calcareous marl, that, when it crops out and is repeatedly exposed to the sun and elements, crumbles and pulverises, determining in this way a rich soil minerality. 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 cultivation on these hills dates back to pre-Roman times. In more recent times, Moscato vine was also part of Alberico da Rosciate will (8th June 1347).
