How it's made

Palazina vineyard is on the Il Cascinone estate. Vine yield is almost 800 gallons per 2.5 acres. The fruit is hand harvested in the second half of October (about one month later than the usual Moscato harvest). The grapes are dried on racks for 45 days. During this time 40% of the fruit's weight is lost by water evaporation. In mid-December the whole bunches are pressed and then a slow fermentation is undertaken in oak barrels for 2 months followed by 12 months ageing prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

A nose of intense lemon curd, marmalade and citrus peel with lightly floral notes. The palate has lots of ripe apricot and acacia honey characters with honeyed sweetness, well-balanced by a citrus zest bite on the lingering finish.

Food Match

Delicious with mature cheese or deserts.
