MOSCATO PASSITO DELLA VALLE BAGNARIO DI STREVI
The Moscato Passito definitely deserves a nod. The producers of Valle Bagnario have handed down the production techniques of this jewel of the wine tradition currently protected by the establishment of a Slow Food Presidium. .
Passito is produced exclusively with Moscato grapes coming from this small valley, which has always been recognized as the most famous of the Strevi territory for the production of aromatic grapes. The combination between a soil where the tuff predominates, the excellent drainage, exposure to a particular microclimate allows for the attainment of high concentrations of sugar, acidity and an optimum alcoholic potential, which give rise to a great passionate wine, from the imperious and wide-ranging aroma of great persistence..
Already from the beginning of the 19th century, some documents testify to production, but the exceptional amount of work is certainly a niche product to be safeguarded.
