Moscatello Selvatico

The white grape variety originates from Italy; the name means "wild muscatel". Synonyms are Angelico, Gerusalemme, Moscadella, Moscadello, Moscato di Barletta, Moscato Selvatico, Muscat Ragusano and Ragusano. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2010, it comes from a presumably natural cross between Bombino Bianco x Muscat d'Alexandrie. The early ripening vine produces white wines with a light muscat tone. It is cultivated in the Puglia region and in Tuscany, where it is permitted in the DOC wines Moscato di Trani and Moscadello di Montalcino. It is also used as table grape. In 2016, only 5 hectares of vines were still designated (Kym Anderson).

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
