Lovo, Fior d’Arancio D.O.C.G
(FEE-or dah-RAHN-choh)

 

Tasting Notes: Fior d’Arancio (“orange blossom”) is one of the world’s unique wines: a very rare clone of Moscato that derives its unmistakable citrus scent from the orange groves growing nearby. Wow! A sparkling wine with refined bubbles and a beautiful, pearlescent color, Fior d’Arancio is perfect as an aperitif or to accompany a delightful dessert. Produced by Salvatore Lovo, a true hands-in- the-dirt winemaker, there are very few estates in Italy that can produce this DOCG wine, so our friendly advice is to enjoy it while we can!
