Organoleptic properties

This label goes definitely beyond the thought that Moscato should be drunk within the year of production. The range of aromas of this 2003 can be described by plenty of characteristics that a Moscato produced by old plants and through a long Charmat method can show. Its maturity conveys the flavours of ripe apricot, hay and mint. Full mouth with correct evolution hints and strawberry-tree honey finish. It can be well matched with a pecorino di fossa (pecorino cheese of the pit) or with monkfish liver with butter and sage.
To maintain at 5° shortly before the service.
