Moscatello di Taggia Passito

Riviera Ligure di Ponente

 

Moscatello di Taggia is an ancient ligurian grapevine, a White Muscat clone that has even more flavour and softness here in Liguria.
The vineyards are well exposed and placed in a windy areas: they enable us to apply the grape drying on the plant; we cut the vine shoot after a good selection of the best bunches..
