Saracena Moscato al Governo

Saracena Moscato has a well-documented history dating back to the 16th century and is made by vinifying guarnaccia, malvasia, odoacra and moscatello grapes. Moscatello is a local variety which has never been officially registered. After the harvest, the guarnaccia, odoacra and malvasia grapes are pressed and their must is boiled, reducing its volume by a third. The cooked must is mixed with the must obtained from pressing raisined moscatello grapes. The blend is then fermented in wooden barrels for a minimum of six months before being bottled. The wine is bright amber in color, intensely perfumed, with resinous, aromatic notes joined by hints of dried fig, exotic fruit, almonds and honey.

The Presidium involves a number of Saracena producers who are aiming to improve the quality of the wine and to pay greater attention to the sustainable cultivation of the vineyards. Their immediate goals are to register the moscatello grape variety and obtain a denomination of origin.
