Grapes are harvested in September and immediately crushed to obtain a must that is clarified and then filtered. The must is stored at 32°F and allowed to warm just prior to bottling, starting its fermentation process. The must is then combined with the Moscato base, which brings the sweetness and effervescent sparkling to the finished product. The blend is clarified and stabilized and then filtered to make it clear. A secret traditional recipe of natural cherry flavor is then added to release the distinctive notes of ripe cherries.
The Ricco Cherry Moscato combines the floral and fruity sweetness of Moscato wine with the natural flavors of ripe Italian cherries. It is semi sweet and rich with a balanced acidity and a fresh effervescent finish.
It is ideal as an aperitif. It also pairs well with chocolate desserts, goat cheese, pork ribs and tuna burgers. Cherry Moscato is perfect for making cocktails.
Suggested serving it chilled between 46°F and 50°F.
