Red Wine – Nero Musqué

Red Wine – Nero Musqué

Among our Sicilian wines, Nero Musqué is the most curious, an intense and precious example of a sweet red wine: a rare ampelographic jewel that links our Euganean Hills to the marvellous Sicilian lands.

The desire to experiment led us to Sicily, where we found the ideal place to cultivate Moscato Nero, from which Nero Musqué is now made. This wild vine in the Euganean Hills was not always able to produce fruit and at the end of the 2000s was about to be uprooted. On the island, however, the proximity to the sea and the warm breeze of the Mistral allow these grapes to remain dry and healthy well beyond their technological maturation time, resulting in an increase in sugars and a decrease in acidity in the berry.
We thus obtain a sweet, rare and intense wine. A concentrate of aromas and flavours reminiscent of the aromatic plants of the coastal scrubland: the nose is inebriated with jammy red fruits, hints of quince and apricot, leaving balsamic and myrtle scents that frame the balanced and pleasantly sugary sip.

Pairings with sweet Sicilian wine Nero Musqué
Nero Musqué is a sweet red wine with deep aromatic and balsamic intensities that blend in harmony with the sweet aromas of jammy fruit. The sweet notes of this wine make it ideal for pairing with crunchy dried fruit, not-too-dark chocolate and some blue cheese.
Nero Musqué is also a perfect meditation wine and a treat to share with family and friends.
Uncork and serve at 14-16°C.

The story of a journey: that of Nero Musqué
Nero Musqué is more than a sweet wine: it is the story of a journey that begins in the Euganean Hills and arrives in the warm lands of Sicily. In 2005, we began an experimental journey, in collaboration with the Regional Vine and Wine Institute of Sicily, which focused on a study of different varieties of Moscati. This was also an opportunity to find a new home for the Moscato Nero plants that we wanted to preserve. A demanding and not very productive vine, migrating between the different shores of the Mediterranean, which has found its ideal location on the summit of a tuffaceous hill overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. Thanks to the mild climate, the sea breeze and the conformation of the terrain, we cultivate this variety of Moscato Nero, obtaining a sweet Sicilian wine, unique in its aromas and flavours: Nero Musqué.
