Blog: Moscato Giallo | Grape variety

The golden muscatel grape is grown in numerous varieties throughout Italy and in South Tyrol, but its distribution and quantity is very limited. In South Tyrol it is grown between Algund and Salurn. The grape is considered very demanding in terms of exposure and soil, it is intolerant of improper plant protection, inappropriate pruning; the late ripening limits its cultivation to southern climes. Due to climatic conditions, the grape is prone to pollination disturbance during flowering, which leads to yield reduction. The influence of the winemaker on many disturbing factors is small: such as rain, cold, high heat, nutrient deficiency or excess.

Rich in finesse, South Tyrolean Goldmuskateller has had DOC quality wine status since 1975. This traditional wine is a distinct rarity, with only 88 hectares under cultivation in all of South Tyrol. As a rule, there is a cool must pre-clarification followed by controlled low-temperature fermentation at 15-18 degrees C., followed by four months of aging on the fine lees in stainless steel barrels.

Pale yellow with light greenish reflections, in the aroma it presents the typical aroma of the gold muscatel reflected. It captivates with hints of green apple, subtle biscuit notes, fragrant orange blossoms, some citrus fruit as well as mango. The palate is juicy and aromatic with a subtle acidity and a very intense fruit and floral notes in the finish. As an aperitif, good with mature cheeses, blue cheeses, fine Asian cuisine and main courses with fruity components, desserts. - Gerardo
