The Moscato di Alessandria, more commonly known as Zibibbo, produces wines with a pleasant aroma of orange blossom and white peach, characterized by enchanting citrus notes.
The resulting wine is straw-yellow in colour tending towards amber because the grapes underwent drying before vinification.
The scent is recognizable for its marked aromaticity and for the fruity hints of raisins, candied citrus and dry fruit. It normally had a great structure and an important flavour-olfactory persistence.
