Product Description

Moscato - Frizzante Style There are several styles in which to make a Moscato - Still - lack of any carbonation, Frizzante - Frizzy, slightly sparkling and Spumante - Literally foaming, a sparkling wine. Our Luna di Luna Moscato is made in the Frizzante style to deliver what we believe is the best traditional flavor. Growing Area From the rolling hills of Oltrepo' Pavese, in the northwest side of Italy, the Luna di Luna vineyards have given birth to premium Moscato grapes for decades. Here a Guyot growing system matched with a limey-soil and "continental" climate condition with a unique exposure to cold winds has become the perfect growing conditions for our Moscato. Wine making The Luna di Luna Moscato is made adapting the traditional winemaking techiniques past on from many generations. The knowledge achieved during the years has perfectioned how to capture fruity aromas and the natural flavor of the Moscato. After harvesting, the grapes are pressed, and during fermentation the carbon dioxide is captured within the wine and gives the wine its frizzante body style. The fermentation process is shortened in order to maintain the grapes natural sugar and rich varietal flavor. After you taste the Luna di Luna Moscato you will realize how a real "sweet nectar" traditional Moscato should taste. Chefs Suggestions Moscato has a straw yellow color with elegant golden highlights. A gentle frizzante style wine, fresh and crisp, with a floral bouquet and fruity finish. Excellent on its own at any time of the day but its true characteristics are particularly enhanced when served with fresh fruit or with dry or creamy desserts.

Varietal: Moscato Bianco

Region: Italy

Region Description:

Makes nearly as much wine as France, but lags behind in their classification system. As a result, Italian wine isn’t taken as seriously as French wine. Most Italian wine is made from native grape varieties that don’t grow well elsewhere, such as Nebbiolo and Sangiovese. The most important regions are Piedmont, where Barolo and Barbaresco dominate, Tuscany, home to Chianti, Montepulciano, and the Super-Tuscans (a collection of relatively new reds), and the Northeastern region, where you’ll find Soave, Valpolicella, and Bardolino. Italy’s soils and climates are varied and ideally suited for viticulture, from the Alpine foothills in the north to the Mediterranean coast in the South. Its hilly landscape provides sun and cooler temperatures, even in the warmest regions. Italy has two categories of fine wines. DOCG, which means regulated and guaranteed place name, refers to a small group of elite wines. DOB wines are those with regulated (but not guaranteed) place names. A lower tier of table wines are grouped into IGT wines, which indicate the location on the label, and ordinary table wines, which carry no geographical indication except, “Italy.”
