Muscat is a very versatile vine which is divided into three categories: very fresh dry and aromatic wines, sparkling sweet wines, and late harvests and passito wines.

It is perfect when tasted in tulip-shaped long-stemmed glasses that allow you to better appreciate its aroma. At sight Muscat wine has more or less intense straw-yellow colors and nuances tending to golden, in more honeyed and mature passito wines where we find a sweetness that at times takes on notes of candied fruit and withered flowers the color tends to bright light amber, in the sweet sparkling version, the Muscat wine has a fragrant foam and fine bubbles.
