Villa Jolanda Moscato & Passion Fruit
WHY WE LOVE IT
- A great sparkling wine from Piedmont that is fairly priced.
- Perfect with dessert and especially with pastries.
Varietal Composition: 100% Moscato
Elaboration: The sparkling process is carried out by using the “Charmat” long method. The grapes are picked manually and immediately pressed. The resulting must is filtered, refrigerated and fermented to create the base wine for the following sparkling process.
Tasting Notes: Bright and refreshing, Moscato and Passion Fruit is an island getaway in a glass! Made from natural passion fruit blended with Moscato wine, this easygoing pour delivers layers of citrus, passion fruit, guava and banana flavors for a pleasing pairing with sunsets, chaise lounges or picnics.
Villa Jolanda is crafted by Santero, a sparkling and still wine producer located in Piedmont, Italy in the southwest province of Cuneo. The winery was founded by the Santero brothers in 1958 and renovated in 1977 to process fruit from its five estate-owned vineyards and over 300 local winegrowers. It is best known for its large export market, unique packaging, and expansive portfolio of sweet wines. The impressive and extremely modern winery covers an area of 25,000 square meters with a total storage of 120,000 hectoliters.
The Langhe and Monferrato, declared a UNESCO world heritage site, represent the area of origin of the white muscat grapes which are used in the production of the wine. The characteristics of this wine are their special aromas and sweetness.
