Moscato Giallo Rarity South tyrol

Mitterberg Bianco Passito "Sissi"

The original nutmeg aroma of the Moscato Giallo meets intense, fruity scents of the Petit Manseng grapes and the floral and tropical hints of the Traminer aromatico in this golden sweet nectar - named after the erstwhile Empress Elisabeth “Sisi”. Only a few sites have the potential to leave the grapes to ripen until the leaves fall from the vine. In so doing, through the natural process of evaporation, they lose volume and weight, and their sugar content increases. In favourable weather conditions, the berries are also affected by noble rot, which lends the wine a unique aroma. A concentrated temptation of apricots, vanilla and nutmeg with unique longevity.
