A dessert wine exclusively made from Yellow Moscato grapes. Its name, Il Gelso di Lapo (Lapo’s mulberry), tells about a place in the heart of the estate: a large mulberry tree among the vineyards, where their dog, Lapo, used to laze.

HARVEST PERIOD: hand-picking of grapes in the middle of September. Grapes are laid down in cases and put in a ventilated and refrigerated room for the drying.

VINIFICATION: grapes dry out in cases for about three months at a controlled temperature. After reaching about a 400 g/l sugar concentration, thy are mashed and pressed. Once a quick cold clarification is done, the must begins the fermentation process in barriques and tonneaux barrels. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation, wine is cooled and sulphites are added.

Tasting Notes

Intense amber yellow. Notes of figs, raisins and honey, but also of orange blossom and candied orange. Taste of sugar content woven to figs, raisins and orange honey. At the end it is velvety, persistent in the mouth. Syrupy, slightly tannic.

It goes down pleasantly well with blue cheeses and pastrybased desserts.
