Fior d'Arancio

Colli Euganei D.O.C.G.

D.O.C.G.

The  noble  Moscato  Giallo  grape  variety  was  already  being  grown  in  the  time  of  Cato,  and  Roman nobility was very fond of this wine. Greek  mariners,  sailing  from  Asia  Minor,  introduced  the  grape  into  the  Mediterranean  as  the  “muscum”  grape,  and  different  varieties  of  it  were  soon  being  cultivated.

 

With the approval of its Production Code April 2011, the  Colli  Euganei  Fior  d’Arancio  DOCG  came  into  effect. The  muscat  cultivar  grown  in  the  Colli  Euganei  is  known as the Moscato Giallo dal Dolce Aroma.

 

The  variety  is  characterised  by  a  cylindrical  cluster  and  medium-large,  spherical  yellowish  berry,  with  a  very  thick  skin;  it  has  a  delicate  bloom,  or  flour-like    coating, on the grape.   

“Muscum,” or musk, from its penetrating odour, eventually gave us the name moscato, and muscat.
