Moscato di Terracina (grape variety)

The white grape variety comes from Italy. Synonyms are Moscatel de Teracina, Moscato di Maccarese, Muscat de Terasina, Muscat de Terracina and Muscat Teracino. Despite morphological similarities, it should not be confused with Muscat d'Alexandrie. The parentage (parenthood) is unknown. The early ripening vine is susceptible to fungal diseases. It produces fragrant white wines with moderate acidity and aromas of roses, apricots and exotic fruits. The variety is mainly cultivated in the Lazio region, where it is permitted in the DOC wine of the same name, Moscato di Terracina. In 2010, the area under cultivation was 138 hectares, with a strong downward trend; ten years earlier it was 229 hectares (Kym Anderson).
