Moscadello

Moscadello, a clone of Moscato, has been grown for centuries in the Montalcino area in Tuscany.

Moscadello di Montalcino DOC – the Moscadello grape has been growing in the Montalcino area since the Renaissance. The greater part of the vineyards of Moscadello grapes were destroyed by phylloxera and were not replaced until the last couple of decades when Moscato Bianco vines (consisting mostly of the Piemontese varietal) were planted.

This lightly fizzy style of this white wine should be consumed within a year of the harvest, especially if it is produced according to the style of the ancient Moscadello. Still, frizzante and liquoroso versions may be produced.
