Forget Moscato D’asti, this is the wine to have this christmas, Il Poggione’s Moscadello di Montalcino. Despite being much, much less famous than the great Brunellos that are produced in Montalcino, Moscadello is considered the oldest wine of Montalcino with the famous Italian poet Francesco Redi (d.1697) praise it in his poem ‘Bacchus in Tuscany’. The wine is a fabulous fruity and slightly sweet with a gentle soft fizz. It is the perfect companion to creamy deserts and pastries that well all be enjoying over the Christmas period. What makes this wine so special is that Il Poggione are the only producer to make their moscadello in this style!!
