Moscato di Scanzo

#vine #blackgrapes #native #lombardy

Moscato di Scanzo, at the base of the homonymous wine, has a particular predisposition to be used for drying. This operation, which takes place during the winter months, allows reducing the water content inside the berries and increasing the concentration of sugar and other extractive substances.

It is cultivated on the hills of the municipality of Scanzorosciate, east of Bergamo, whose soil is made up of a substate of sedimentary rock consisting of both clay and limestone.

Tasting

The prevalent color is ruby red, more or less intense. With aging it tends to garnet red. In young wines there are predominant floral notes of rose and fruity notes of black cherry and wild berries. With aging, the aroma becomes more complex, with interesting notes of almond, licorice and sage. The taste is quite intense and pleasant, characterized by a good acidity adequately balanced with aging. The wine produced is usually full-bodied, sweet, soft and not very tannic. Where persistent, a very pleasant almond aftertaste emerges.
