'Moscatello Selvatico' Spumante Salento IgtL'Archetipo
Moscatello Selvatico is typical of Puglia but is often confused with other varieties of "moscatello." This vine is thought to be the result of a natural cross between Moscato di Alessandria and Bombino Bianco, and to be a grandson of the Moscato Bianco and Axina de Tres Bias vines. Moscatello Selvatico is characterized by a medium to large conical cluster with round berries. It is a pest-resistant vine, planted on different rootstocks that make it more or less productive, which is why it is currently uncommon.
