Fior d’Arancio Spumante – DOCG Colli Euganei

FIOR D’ARANCIO SPUMANTE
The Euganean Hills share both the luck and commitment to preserve and even develop the cultivation of one of the oldest and most characteristic grape varieties of Mediterranean history.
The restricted family of Moscato Giallo, of which the Fior d’Arancio is an excellent testimonial, features wines with almost double aromatic content, compared to the more common Moscato Bianco, with more inviting and solar connotation.
This sparkling wine, sweet but not cloying, is its most fresh version, very close in flavour to the grapes from which derives.
