Bright golden yellow in color, this wine delivers an assertive bouquet with exotic fruit and spice aromas and a fresh, vivacious and highly polished palate.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Immediately lavishes the nose with the aroma of candied lemon, ripe melon, and dried flowers. The palate is decadently fruity with honey-like sweetness, ripe kiwi, and a backbone of minerality. An elegantly sweet, fruity finish rounds it off. (Jun 2016)
Caposaldo Moscato comes from the cool, maritime climate of Provincia di Pavia in northern Italy’s Lombardy region. Here the 20-year-old guyot-trained vines benefit from the blend of white marl and chalk soils in the low-yielding hillside vineyards. Grapes are handpicked, and after a temperature-controlled fermentation the wine undergoes a natural second fermentation in autoclave, resulting in a fine, persistent effervescence.
