Moscato Rosa came to Alto Adige/Südtirol from Sicily 125 years ago. Today, this full-bodied, aromatic, and complex dessert wine with its intense perfume of roses is a much in-demand specialty. Moscato Rosa is temperamental and produces only minimal yields of naturally sweet grapes that are fermented like red wines.
