BackgroundPETALO "Il Vino dell'Amore", the wine of love, adds an irresistibly romantic sparkle to any occasion. Produced by the Bottega family, this delicately sweet sparkling wine is crafted from Moscato grapes grown in northeast Italy's Colli Euganei region, nestled between two fabled cities of love: Verona and Venice. Wild roses, like the one depicted on this bottle, grow among the Moscato vines and impart a pretty floral aroma to the grapes. PETALO is beautifully balanced with fresh fruit flavors and fine, persistent bubbles. Grapes are hand-harvested and softly pressed in the winery. The sparkling wine is created in the Italian Charmat method, with fermentation in stainless steel tanks and a short secondary fermentation in sealed tanks for 30 days. The wine is then promptly bottled and released.
