"Piani di Tufara" Moscato di Trani DOC 2018 - Rivera

Sweet Natural, this Pian di Tufara is an elegant Moscato di Trani DOC. It is made from Moscato Reale grapes, grown on the tufa soil of the area and partly left to dry on racks to concentrate the sugary and aromatic components. The wine is then carefully vinified and matured for 3 or 4 months in new French oak barriques, followed by at least another 6 months of refinement in vitrified cement tanks. The result is a wine characterised by a beautiful bright yellow colour. The nose is surprising for its broad and persistent bouquet, with delicate notes that recall acacia flowers, apricot, pineapple and a hint of candied orange peel. In the mouth, however, it is decidedly rich, with a perfect balance between sweetness and freshness that makes it pleasantly drinkable. Never cloying, this passito should be served slightly chilled and goes well with dry pastries and delicate desserts. For a truly gourmet pairing, however, the advice is to marry it with foie gras or savoury cheeses.

There was a time when Puglia was considered Italy's reservoir of mediocre wines. Mostly powerful and alcoholic reds, often used to give a helping hand to the delicate wines of northern Italy, which were more drained in terms of colour and alcohol. Once upon a time, indeed. Because today Puglia can boast of an important level of quality in its wines, capable of competing on equal terms on the main markets throughout the world. One of the protagonists of this Apulian 'Renaissance' is undoubtedly the Rivera winery. Founded at the end of the 1940s, for many experts and enthusiasts it is the very symbol of this rebirth. As a family business, it has always been committed to promoting its territory. Thanks to a successful "quality project" that starts with the careful management of the 75 hectares of vineyards, according to sustainable farming protocols. Modern, espalier-trained vineyards are cultivated with the main native varieties of the area, such as Bombino Bianco, Bombino Nero, Nero di Troia, Fiano, Aglianico and Moscato Reale. But also international, such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon.
