Trentino Moscato Rosa DOC

#doc #red #still #sweet #moscatorosa

Trentino Moscato Rosa DOC, locally called Moscato delle Rose, is an aromatic red wine produced with Moscato Rosa grapes. It belongs to the designation Trentino DOC, but it is cultivated only in a limited number of vineyards, just over 7 hectares, mostly in the Valle dell'Adige.

It is known for its pleasant sweetness and softness, as its grapes are subjected to a short drying before crushing; it can be further improved with a late harvest or with the addition of alcohol. It can be bottled, at the discretion of the producer, either in the classic Bordeaux bottles or in the traditional “Pulcianella” or “Bocksbeutel” amphorae.

Profile

The color ranges from cherry red to ruby red. The scent is delicate, pleasant and spicy, reminiscent of the typical Moscato aroma. The taste is full and soft, the sweetness is discreet.

Food pairing

Trentino Moscato Rosa DOC is a sweet red wine; it goes well with red fruit tarts, dry pastries in general, spicy cakes - like poppy seed strudel - and soft blue cheese. It is also ideal as a meditation wine.
