The alcoholic fermentation and subsequent secondary fermentation in pressure tanks give the wine a delicate perlage, accompanied by the classic floral and fruity sensations. On the mouth it is reminiscent of wisteria, elderflower, Bosc pears and orange zest.
Panettone and Moscato represent one of the strongest combinations there is. However, anyone who fancies a brief flirtation – gastronomically speaking – should absolutely try it with Belon oysters. The tangy sweet sensation of the oyster will blend perfectly with the fruity softness of the wine.
