Il Gelso di Lapo
Euganei Hills Docg
A sweet wine made only from Yellow Moscato grapes. Its name, Il Gelso di Lapo (Lapo’s mulberry) tells about a place of the heart in our estate: a large mulberry among the vineyards where our dog Lapo loves to laze. Intense amber yellow colour, this wine smells of figs, raisins and honey, but also of orange blossom. Typical aromas of the grape. In the mouth it is velvety and persistent.
