Andrea Da Ponte | Fior D’Arancio Moscato DOCG
$26.00The noble Moscato Giallo grape variety was already being grown in the time of Cato, and Roman nobility was very fond of Fior D’Arancio. Greek mariners, sailing from Asia Minor, introduced the grape into the Mediterranean as the “muscum” grape, and different varieties of it were soon being cultivated. “Muscum,” or musk, from its penetrating odour, eventually gave us the name moscato, and muscat. We are proud to present Andrea Da Ponte Fior D’Arancio DOCG. With the approval of its Production Code April 2011, the Colli Euganei Fior d’Arancio DOCG came into effect. The muscat cultivar grown in the Colli Euganei is known as the Moscato Giallo dal Dolce aroma. The variety is characterized by a cylindrical cluster and medium-large, spherical yellowish berry, with a very thick skin; it has a delicate bloom, or flour-like coating, on the grape.
