Tenuta Caseo is a property owned by the larger Tommasi Family Estates in Lombardy. The Caseo estate is unique for its sun exposure, south-southwest and the composition of the soil with a high clay content, along with a good presence of active limestone, perfect for making elegant wines. The Caseo vineyards cover 120 hectares in the smaller sub-region of Oltrepò Pavese. Moscato is the oldest known grape variety, with a complicated family tree. There are three main types of Moscato, Muscat of Alexandria, Muscat Ottonel, and the best quality for wine from Muscat Blanc à Petits Grain. Moscato Giallo is a varient of Muscat Blanc à Petits Grain and is produced mainly in northeastern Italy. The yellow bird on the Caseo label is of a 'Capinera', a small song with a black crest, that can be found at home at the Caseo winery. Serve this summer, well chilled to 5C.
Straw yellow with green hues, small bubbles cling to the edges of the glass.
Moscato is a very aromatic grape, the Giallo variant is most noted for its orange blossom aromas. We also found a fresh and vibrant, melon, nectarine, rose water, elderflower and mango.
Tingly effervescence on the tongue, lightly sweet, but balanced with solid acidity. The palate has more variety in fruits with an addition of pink grapefruit and melons and less florals. There is also more concentrated dried fruits too, mango and nectarines. Mild and fresh finish, incredibly addicting on a warm summer evening!
