Moscadello di Montalcino DOC Late Harvest

Dessert Wines

Production Area

Estate vineyards in the southern hills of Montalcino. Altitude: 120 meters above sea level. Position: Hillside.

GRAPE VARIETIES

100% Moscadello

Method of production

The wine is obtained exclusively by the natural drying on the vine, which lasts until mid October and beyond. The raisined grapes are crushed and pressed; the juice is slowly fermented at 15°C for several months until 14-15% alcohol is reached. Part of the wine is aged for 1 year in French oak barriques. An adequate bottle aging period follows.

The winemaker comment

This late harvest is a historic variety of Montalcino. The taste is round, full and extremely perfumed with a hint of acidity that gives balance in the mouth.
