Pasithea Rosa Moscato Rosa

Vintage

2015

Classification

Alto Adige DOC

Production area

Moscato Rosa is grown on the hillside vineyards of  Cornaiano at an altitude ranging from 400 to 500 m above sea level in well aired vineyards. The soil is rich in minerals, the result of ice age sedimentation.

Winemaking

The grape have been harvested mid-November 2015. The grapes are harvested in small crates, in which they are left to dry and their natural concentration of sugars increases. Mid-January after 2 weeks of maceration on skins the grapes are pressed. The final fermentation that follows is very slow; the high sugar content means it ends spontaneously. Aging for 8 months in small oak barrels.

Tasting notes & food matching

The bouquet is a mix of roses, ripe woodland strawberries, red currants and a spicy note of cinnamon.  The flavour is soft, with light tannins, a sweet fullness in the mouth and a persistent after-note. A good match when served with fruit desserts and cakes.
