The origin of this grape is uncertain but it is almost certainly arrived in Trentino from Veneto region in the days of the Venetian Republic when it was called “moscata” or “moscatella” (Muscat or muscatel). It is mainly grown in the Vallagarina area, although there are vineyards in the hills around Trento and San Michele all’Adige. The vineyard which produces the Cantine Monfort’s grapes lies in the hills around Meano near Trento. In Trentino a special clone is cultivated which is usually made into a dry white after a careful selection of the grapes. Cantine Monfort proposes this wine where the grapes have been left to ripen for a longer period and then made into a sweet wine.
