It is always the perfect time to crack open a bottle of Italian dessert wine. From the south to the north, each region has its own sweet and dry wines. The rich and distinctive flavours of these regional wines speak to their cultural traditions. The ethereal and rich Italian dessert wine is rich in aromas and flavour and can age for up to 20 years. The most popular variety of Italian dessert wine can be found on our Wine Cart site and are made with grapes from the same grapes as Muscat.
Italian Dessert Wine, The Perfect Way To End a Meal
The grapes used to produce Italian dessert wines are different. Some are sweet, while others are dry. Some Italian wines are a combination of red and white, while some are exclusively red or white. The sweetness of the wine is the most important characteristic, but it can also vary depending on the type of grapes used. A typical dessert wine is golden in colour. A glass of Little Vespa Moscato pairs perfectly with a plate of cantuccini biscuits and a bowl of warm vanilla ice cream.
Traditionally, Italian winemakers dry the grapes before fermentation. The grapes are often hung for almost half a year after harvest or are dried on mats for 40 days. This allows the sugar in the grapes to ripen, giving the wine a sweeter flavour. Because Italian dessert wine is usually served at room temperature, it can be paired with a variety of foods. However, if you don't have any sweet foods at home, you might be able to get away with an Italian dessert wine instead.
