Moscato di Trani, DOP

16,00
Villa Schinosa’s Moscato di Trani DOP is the emblem of Apulian winemaking excellence, a sweet wine that encapsulates centuries of history and tradition. This grape variety, likely of Greek origin and spread throughout the Mediterranean, finds in Trani, with its specific Controlled Designation of Origin obtained in 1987, an ideal habitat thanks to calcareous soils and a microclimate that enhances its peculiarities. The care in cultivation and vinification, with a process of drying on the vine and controlled temperature fermentation, creates a Moscato with a bright golden color, citrus notes, and a broad and harmonious fragrance. The taste is rich and complex, with an aftertaste that brings the freshness of sea breezes and a persistent almond scent. Perfect as an aperitif with spicy cheeses or as the conclusion of a meal alongside dry pastries, Moscato di Trani DOP is served chilled, at 10°/12°C, to fully appreciate its extraordinary range of flavors.
