Tasting Notes: La Perlina, or “little pearl”, is inspired by the mythical past of the Mediterranean, from the sailors of Homer’s Odyssey to the Sirens that beckoned them. The sea was full of hope and danger, adventure and romance – qualities which animate this beautiful Moscato from Italy. Made from hand-selected grapes grown on coveted, high-altitude sites. A delicately sweet white wine with soft, pearl-like bubbles.
