Wine name:
Solio - Loazzolo di Valdiserre D.O.C. - Isolabella della Croce (375ml)

Dessert wine

Alcohol content:
11% Vol

Grape variety:
100% estate grown Moscato Bianco.

Area of origin:
Borgo Isolabella in Loazzolo (Langhe district) with southeast, south, southwest aspect.

Vinification and ageing:
Raisined grapes are destemmed and very softly pressed. After a brief fermentation period in steel vats, the wine is matured for 24 months, with at least 12 months in barriques.

Tasting notes:
Colour: intense straw-yellow with noticeable golden highlights.
Aroma: irrepressible aromatic elegance of citrus fruits, sage and withered yellow flowers. Distinct aromas of dried fruit, apricots preserved in alcohol and quince. There is a beguiling, extremely elegant waxy note, born of the raisining and the wine's glyceric structure.
Taste: the fresh and exceptional balance between its sweetness and acidity is responsible for the wines cellaring ability, creating memorable sensations in the mouth.

Suggested pairings:
This harmonious wine has a relatively low alcohol content, making it a versatile companion for a wide range of foods. However, light blue-vein cheeses and certain types of matured meats and salamis make interesting pairings. Although traditionally paired with biscuits and cakes, wines such as this, which create such an "emotional impact", really deserve to be meditated over on their own.

Serve at a temperature of 10-12° C
