Mitterberg Moscato Rosa IGT USHAS

Mitterberg Moscato Rosa IGT USHAS

Only nine hectares in South Tyrol are planted with Moscato Rosa. As a variety it is very demanding. It needs a very warm and dry site, and demands patient care in the vineyard. The flower is female, so the vine cannot fertilize itself, which often leads to coulure. These small seedless berries have a stunning concentration of aromas, reminiscent of Asian fruit and spice markets. In the mild and breezy Kurtatsch hillside in the district of Rain, the Usha Rosa Moscato has found an ideal micro-terroir. Through drastically reducing the yield, this edelsüße wine, with the typical baroque richness, is an exact mineral reflection of its site. While the bold, long maceration lends Usha a spicy tannic contour, which enters into a tantalizing liaison with the Rose, Rosehip, cinnamon and orange peel flavors.
