Colli Euganei Docg
A dry Moscato, nice and velvety, endowed with an important structure which is the result of partial fermentation in oak tonneaus. A wine made with Yellow Moscato grapes which is usually produced as a sweet sparkling wine, but in this case it is surprising in the dry and still version. A perfect bottle for starters and main courses. Better if aromatic and zingy.
