Puglia is a region in southeastern Italy that forms the
“heel of the boot”. It is situated along bodies of water on
most of its borders, including the Adriatic Sea to the East.
Known as the least mountainous region in Italy, Puglia is
mainly covered by broad plains and low-lying hills. It is a
hot and dry climate with few rivers, but an abundance of
ground water reserves formed from rain permeating the
limestone soils allows for excellent viticulture.
The must is not left on the skins to avoid its acquiring
their rust-red color. After soft-pressing the must is left
to ferment at a temperature between 18-20°C in stainless
steel vats. The wine is then stored at 17-18°C in special
stainless-steel tanks until bottling.
La Fiera Moscato is a soft white wine with flavors of
apricot and peach in its fruity bouquet. The pallet is sweet
and crisp with a hint of spritz.
