Piera Martellozzo, Moscato, IGT Puglia
Varietal: 100% Moscato Bianco
Region: Colli Euganei, hills near Padua city north-east of Italy
Winemaking Process: Grapes are picked by hand to select the best fruit. After a soft pressing, a short period of maceration and a short static decantation of the must, the temperature is reduced to 0°C to avoid the fermentation. Starting from the must, fermentation takes place in stainless steel, then a short Charmat method, about two months. In theend the wine is chilled, filtered and isobaric bottling is carried out.
Aroma/Palate: Bright golden yellow, a fine and delicate perlage. Notes of exotic fruits and orange zest, peach and apricot. Sweet with subtle aromatic aromas of citrus fruit; the aromatic aftertaste recalls the flavour of the Moscato grape, with pleasant freshness.
Serving Temperature: 8 - 10 °C/46°-50°F
