VITICULTURE: The Moscato grapes for this wine come from vineyards located in Santo Stefano Belbo villages, at 200 to 300 feet above sea level.
VINIFICATION: Vinification is via autoclave, according to the Charmat Method, until it reaches 5.5% alcohol. Then, wine undergoes cold fermentation and aging in stainless steel vats for one month, after which time it is blended with all-natural lime from Sicily and ginger from Vietnam which is added for a contact period of 24 hours and then bottled.
SERVING HINTS: Tropical Ginger Lime Moscato is delicious when enjoyed on its own. It also makes an excellent addition to craft cocktail recipes.
FAMILY: Where Italy meets the Tropics—flows Tropical Moscato, a sparkling wine made from premium Moscato from Piedmont, Italy. The wines are infused with 100% real fruit in every bottle; real passion fruit and mango from Brazil, Italian white peaches, cranberries, strawberries and blueberries from the Italian Alps, grapefruit and limes from Sicily and ginger from Vietnam. Tropical’s second line, Tropical Lux Mango and Passion Fruit Moscato, is only 90 calories with 5.5% alcohol. There are never any artificial ingredients or added sugar.
Tropical Moscato is the brainchild of Italian winemaker Luca Bosio. Charismatic and dynamic, Luca is the third generation of his family to tend to the approximately 60 acres of gently sloping hillsides of Italy’s Northeastern Piedmont region. Luca’s Masters of Oenology education enabled him to utilize technological innovations such as the development and use of native yeasts and decreasing the use of chemical additives like sulphur dioxide. He also created new techniques to preserve the aroma and structure of Moscato.
