Part of the grapes are dried on straw mats indoors.

The wine is bottled in the spring of the third year after the harvest.

Characteristics: Deep yellow color, with hints of gold. Fruit forward, rich, ripe, apricot notes.
The Moscato base is evident and is enhanced by spicy and roasted notes. Rich and creamy on the palate, it is not merely sweet but also alcoholic, with a finish of almond, spice and citrus.
