Caposaldo Merlot Moscato Sweet Pink

The red Merlot and white Moscato grapes that combine to make this pink wine grow on the cool hilltops of northern Italys Veneto and Lombardy regions, where the warm daytime sun contrasting with cool night air helps the grapes to retain their distinctive aromas. The fruit is handpicked, and after a temperature-controlled fermentation the wine is sweetened with unfermented grape juice and undergoes a natural second fermentation in autoclave, resulting in a fine, persistent effervescence.
