BackgroundRoscato is a collection of irresistible, delicately sweet wines from northern Italy. Roscato seamlessly combines a long-held grape growing tradition with the flair of modern wine making techniques and style. The result is a wine of enticing character that perfectly meets the surging demand for sweet wines.
VinificationThe grapes are harvested separately as they ripen at slightly different times. After being destalked and pressed, a part of the must is filtered and stored at low temperature to prevent alcoholic fermentation; the other part is allowed to complete fermentation. The wines then undergo natural second fermentation in closed tanks in order to produce sparkling wines. A blend is then made up of the various wines left to develop and mature separately and the grape must preserved at 32°F.
