2013 Uvaggio Moscato 'dolce'
100% Moscato Giallo
100% Lodi appellation
100% Bella Vigna Vineyard
We harvested these grapes on the very last day of Sept, at the peak of maturity, which resulted in a very expressive and flavorful wine. It can be enjoyed solo or served at the end of a meal, to accompany a lighter dessert or cheese. Having a low alcohol and high level of residual sugar, it offers a ‘yin-yang’ balance between delicacy and richness.
It was very cold fermented using a strain of yeast specifically selected for making this style of wine. Post fermentation it was racked, fined, racked again for additional clarity, followed by filtration to bottle.
Bottled in Dec 2015; 8.4% alcohol,
pH 3.32, TA 5.7 g/l & RS 89 g/l
Our descriptors: very perfumed; flavors of tropical fruits, along with stone fruits like apricot, nectarine and peach; on the palate it is lush and velvety, yet not at all cloying.
