Moscato (NV)


Terroir: Folonari Moscato is selected from hillside vines cultivated in Oltrepò Pavese on over 800 hectares of vineyards. The vines are trained using the Guyot system and grow on white soils of calcareous-marly origin. The yield per hectare in about 8000 kilos.

Vinification: Grapes are harvested when they are slightly overripe, are subjected to soft pressing for vinification off the skins with cryomaceration. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 18-20°C; when the right alcoholic content has been reached fermentation is then stopped by sharply reducing the temperature to leave a high natural sugar residue.

    "For $9 a bottle there is a tremendous value here. The wine is well made and its only flaw is that the acidity is not quite balanced with the sugar. I would have preferred just a tad more residual sugar and a longer finish, but this is still a wine I would recommend. Moscato not only makes a great dessert wine, but pairs great with cheeses and appetizers as a starter wine.

    Light straw color with a nose of petrol, acacia, and peach. On the palate there is Juicy Fruit gum upfront followed by peach, sour red pear and melon, honey and white grape juice. There is good acidity on the finish."
