Moscato dell'Elba

Traditional wine-making and natural semi-drying processes make a honeyed, sweet wine that is also good as an aperitif.

It is produced with 100 % choice Moscato grapes, and then undergoes a natural semi-drying process in the open air. Some vineyards also produce Moscato with organically grown grapes, from that vine that is so well adapted to the climate and soil conditions characteristic of Elba.

The vine matures early and it is already possible to harvest it at the end of August. After about 10 days of the semi-drying process, the grapes are sorted and gathered together. The must then ferments for some months in order to produce at least 13-14 % alcohol.

The wine yield from the grapes is from 25-30 %. White Moscato wine has a colour ranging from a deep straw yellow to amber, an intense bouquet characteristic of the Moscato grape, and a honeyed sweet taste with a velvety soft feel.

The minimum alcohol content is about 16 % and it should be served at a temperature of 12-14°C, in small, short-stemmed glasses.

White Moscato can be drunk as an aperitif, but is particularly well adapted to being served at the end of a meal with dessert. Being a wine for meditation, it is also a good accompaniment to baked, dry pastries and biscuits, as well as mature and spicy cheeses.
