Petali Moscato

Muscat grapes Erice D.O.C.

The typical hints of white Muscat grapes grown in the Erice region are enhanced by the second fermentation
that takes place directly in the tank containing exclusively fresh, first-press grape must without the use of a wine base. This technique allows for aromatic enhancement and creates the pleasant taste that brings to mind fresh grapes. Its pleasant floral scents, reminiscent of white roses, inspire its name. The result is a sparkling wine characterized by a strong tie with the territory that is versatile and delicate.
