The Colli Euganei is an up-and-coming wine region located in a volcanic chain of hills outside the city of Padua. This expression of Moscato is sweet and enduring, with aromas of yellow rose and jasmine.
Similar in style and taste to a declassified Right Bank wine (the blend is 60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon). It’s a touch sharp and green at first but then shows better with time. Lean and peppery, the red-fruit core is spicy and brambly. A little short on stuffing but long on the finish, with licorice and black pepper popping through.
