Passito Bianco "Oro"

Moroder_Oro_label.jpgWinery: Moroder
Montacuto, Italy
Appellation: Marche

 Site: Grown organically in the winery’s estate vineyards.

Grapes: 100% Moscato Fior d’Arancio

Fermentation and Aging: Part of harvest, dried; part of harvest left on the vine until mid to late December. Two years in barrique.

Notes: Every Contadoro has rows of Moscato planted, to provide sweet temptation for the birds and the boars. Oro (“Gold”) offers crazy scents of basil and wild herbs. One of the coolest dessert wines I’ve ever tasted.
