Our Moscato comes from Italy’s renowned Tre Venezie region where we found incredibly lush, flavorful grapes for this sweet, fruit-forward wine. Delicate floral aromas of jasmine, hibiscus and wildflowers complement the enticing flavors of melon, honeysuckle and orange blossom, leading to a refreshing, zesty finish. Enjoy as a summertime sipper paired with vanilla ice cream, yogurt granola parfait or strawberry cheesecake.
Italy makes nearly as much wine as France, but lags behind in their classification system. As a result, Italian wine isn’t taken as seriously as French wine. Most Italian wine is made from native grape varieties that don’t grow well elsewhere, such as Nebbiolo and Sangiovese. The most important regions are Piedmont, where Barolo and Barbaresco dominate, Tuscany, home to Chianti, Montepulciano, and the Super-Tuscans (a collection of relatively new reds), and the Northeastern region, where you’ll find Soave, Valpolicella, and Bardolino. Italy’s soils and climates are varied and ideally suited for viticulture, from the Alpine foothills in the north to the Mediterranean coast in the South. Its hilly landscape provides sun and cooler temperatures, even in the warmest regions.
