Muškat San Salvatore 2017



Muškat San Salvatore 2017

This is the flagship of our winery and one of our two single vineyard wines. It is our most awarded wine with trophies and Platinum medals from the most prestigious international competitions like Decanter and IWC. We produce it using the so-called passito method. Grapes from the late harvest are further air-dried for three months, which makes the berries shrivel and concentrate their sugar and acid content, resulting in a complex and irresistibly attractive sweet nectar. Muškat San Salvatore is the type of dessert wine that can be stored for decades and its quality will only continue to grow. It is therefore meant to be a wine for special moments or as a gift on important occasions.

It was generally a warm year, almost droughty, with little rain from March to August, then some more rainfall in September, but a very dry October. In terms of the vegetative cycle, there was somewhat less lushness, but a high concentration of sugar and moderate yield. Since the harvesting time was before the September rains, the grapes were eventually very healthy. The harvest took place in early September.


A dessert Muscat that is so sweet and thick that it can easily be matched with cakes. However, it is much better to pair it with aromatic hard goat’s cheese or blue cheese. It has the aromas of dried apricot, honey, dried flowers, orange jam. The colour is deep golden, almost amber. A very sweet, complex and multidimensional wine. On the palate it is sweet, thick and intense, not heavy at all, nicely balanced and with an exceptionally lingering finish. It can be stored for at least fifteen to twenty more years.

Gastronomic recommendation:

With pastries like London bars or dry biscuits like cantuccini. Also with aged goat’s cheese and blue cheese.
