The history of Yellow Muscat grapes and Passito Fior D’Arancio
The Euganean Hills have always been a land with a vocation for Muscat grapes. Over time, the attention of winemakers has focused not only on White Muscat, but also on Yellow Muscat. A type of Muscat that expresses itself best in this area with its mild climate where there is no shortage of temperature excursions. A kind of Yellow Muscat, known here as Fior d’Arancio, owes its name to its unmistakable floral and citrus scents. In 2011, Fior d’Arancio was awarded DOCG Colli Euganei status.
Our Passito Fior D’Arancio is a natural wine that reflects our choice of certified organic wine production. The care with which we produce it emerges from the very first moments: the harvest is done by hand so that the grapes arrive in the cellar laid out in small crates to be subsequently selected. We choose only bunches with perfectly intact, dry and ripe grapes to be placed on racks to dry.
Our Fior d’Arancio Passito is intense and complex and can be defined as a meditation wine. It is perfect for pairing with dry pastries and seasoned or blue cheeses. We recommend serving at 14-16°C.
