Il MOSCATO DI SCANZO DOCG
Wine of legend, wine of the Gods, come to us from the distant prehistory, legend of the wandering peoples of Asia Minor: this is the MOSCATO DI SCANZO. The Moscato is harvested manually from the beginning until the middle of October in plastic crates being careful not to ruin the grapes. Once harvested, the broken berries are eliminated in order to prevent mold during the drying period. Once cleaned all the bunches from the broken berries, they are stored in special boxes, which favor the passage of air, and left to pass from 21 to 40 days (depending on weather conditions). The withering takes place in a protected room but in a natural way without any kind of conditioning or other kind of forcing. Leaving the bunch in contact with the external environment, the bunch absorbs all the characteristics of the environment. During the drying phase, monitoring is carried out periodically and, if there is any mold formation, the grapes are eliminated or, in the worst cases, the bunches. Once the appropriate degree of drying has been reached, the grapes are removed from the grapes. At this point begins the fermentation phase which proceeds for a few months; during this phase the pressing of the marc is initially carried out and then the mute are periodically carried out. Once fermentation is complete, the wine obtained is left to rest for almost 18 months, during which the filtering and the intended wetsuits are carried out. in the autumn of two years after the bottling is carried out to prepare for the sale that can start after 11 November.
Moscato di Scanzo is a typical meditation wine, ruby red in color, extremely fragrant with a predominance of wild berries, marasca, which with aging tends to assume, predominantly, the taste of fruit compote; in the aftertaste flavors of incense and flint.
