Moscato Rosa
rosenmuskateller
When Prince Henry of Campofranco moved from Sicily to Caldaro in 1851, he brought cuttings of Moscato Rosa along with him. Today, this full-bodied, aromatic, and complex dessert wine with its intense perfume of roses is a specialty that is very much in demand. Moscato Rosa is temperamental to grow and produces only minimal yields of naturally sweet grapes that are fermented like a red wine.
