Ricco Cherry Moscato
Harvest and Vinification notes
Grapes are harvested in September and immediately crushed to obtain a must that is clarified and then filtered. The must is stored at 32 degrees Fahrenheit 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.
Our Ricco Cherry Moscato combines the floral and fruity sweetness of Moscato wine with the natural flavors of ripe Italian cherries. It is s sweet and rich with a balanced acidity and a fresh effervescent finish.

Piedmont, located in the northwest of Italy and bordered by France and Switzerland, is surrounded by the Alps on three sides. The name Piedmont means ‘the foot of the mountain’, which is completely appropriate as the region lies at the foothills of the Alps. Its continental climate with diurnal temperature variations create the ideal winegrowing climate: warm days and drastic drops in temperature at night. This favorable climate, in conjunction with advanced technologies used in producing wine, have lead the Piedmont to be one of the top three wine producing regions in Italy.
