100 % Moscato Bianco grapes from the Scrapona vineyard in the Bagnario Valley, Strevi. The must obtained from the pressing of the grapes is stored at low temperatures until it is fermented in temperature-controlled pressurized tanks where an alcohol content of 5.5% is reached and re-fermentation takes place. Following filtration and stabilization, it is then bottled at a low temperature to facilitate its preservation and natural vivacity.
A golden yellow, sweet aromatic wine with fine, elegant perlage. Intense and persistent nose with strong hints of citrus, honey, lime and then again peach, sage, and orange blossom. The flavor is fresh, sweet, aromatic, persistent and elegant like the grapes it comes from.
A welcome drink to relax with any time as well as an interesting aperitif paired with vegetables fried in batter. Ideal with desserts and baked goods, hazelnut specialties, traditional Christmas cakes and panettone, fruit salad, macaroons, custard, and zabaglione.

Scarpona is the best vineyard in Strevi’s prestigious Bagnario Valley, with south-westerly exposure, 300 masl, marl and limestone terrain. 6.5 hectares of vineyards are cultivated using the most modern viticulture practices which aim for low yields obtained through short pruning, thinning and grassing, combined with strict respect for the environment. A multi-clonal vineyard where five different clones have been planted, including the Marenco clone from our original vines which always produced Moscato of exceptional quality.
The name Scrapona derives from the dialect "scrapare" meaning to climb, referring to the steepness of the hillside ... since the best vineyards are always those most difficult to work.
