2013 Moscato di Noto “Mizzica”


2013 Moscato di Noto “Mizzica” Riofavara - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



I just tasted a sample of this wine with our national sales team earlier this week, and it elicited a lot of oohs and aahs. It is certainly a unique creation, and perhaps a first in the wine world. Massimo Padova of Riofavara took his indigenous Moscato grapes from the Val di Noto in southeastern Sicily and used them to craft a bonedry white. (The area is known for its sweet wines.) Noto’s terroir consists of an arid plateau of white limestone, so imagine what dry Muscat grown in these conditions tastes like: an herbal infusion with exotic fruit and a dry, chalky finish. –Dixon Brooke
