White of Moscato

One 750ml bottle (12 bottles make a full case)

“100% Zibbibo (Moscato)sourced from vineyards in Marsala. Volcanic & sandy limestone soils. 12 meters elevation. Spontaneous fermentation on the skins with indigenous yeasts in terra cotta amphorae. 6 month aging on skins in amphorae followed by 2 months in concrete tanks and 3 months in bottle before release… Giusto Occhipinti of COS is a benchmark producer in the Vittoria appellation of Sicily, and certainly one of the most important and influential producers in all of Sicily if not Italy as a whole… For Giusto, “the vineyard is like our life’s savings in the bank, so we must protect it.” Protecting it means that they work organically and biodynamically in order to support the health of the soil. In fact, they have never used any synthetic or chemical additives in the vineyard since the outset in 1980...Extended skin contact is used for many of the wines, including whites. Giusto believes that the skins act as a natural preservative thus permitting the use of lower doses of sulfur." -Beaune Imports
