Deep golden-yellow, sweet berries are the hallmark of the Moscato Giallo grape - a sparkling jewel in the Graf range. Since it is harvested in late autumn, only a few vines on the sunniest slopes in the Merano region are able, in combination with consistent yield reduction, to draw out the full potential of this grand variety. A dry white wine with an unmistakeable nutmeg aroma - a truly unique fragrant kiss.

Most Alto Adige Moscato giallos are made with residual sugar - our dry Moscato giallo is one of the exceptions. This grapevine has high requirements for microclimates, soils and yield. The warm days on the vineyard slopes determine the plump fruitiness of the wine. The cool nights are responsible for the lively acidity structure and spiciness. This dry Moscato giallo has somewhat less Moscato flavor than our sweeter variety. It delights, however, with complex spicy notes and subtle jasmine and apricot aromas. An ideal aperitif wine or to be paired with spicy Asian and oriental dishes.

The dry Moscato Giallo is slightly yellowish gold. It is a fine and aromatic wine. At the beginning, you can taste citrus notes, white peach, melissa and elderberry mixed with nuances of nutmeg and sweet spices. The strong acidity and the discrete mineral structure give this wine an excellent freshness and pleasantness.

Colterenzio Schreckbichl Pfefferer Bottle Preview
Colterenzio SchreckbichlPfefferer

The wine Pfefferer is named after the Pfefferer grape, a particular variety of the Muscat grape that in the Alto Adige dialect has always been called Pfefferer. Probably because the spicy aroma is reminiscent of pepper, since Pfeffer in German means pepper. The Pfefferer has delicate fruit aromas reminiscent of Muscat, youthful freshness – an excellent aperitif wine. The wine is unashamedly aromatic and elegant, dry, youthful and zesty with grapey fruit and lots of freshness.

My interpretation of the “Principessa” shows what can be hidden behind an aromatic grape variety if you think outside the box and break new ground. Due to the mash fermentation, the aromas, which are often pungent to me, take a back seat and thanks to the light tannins, the wine is easy to drink with a nice freshness. The typicality of the grape variety remains recognizable, but it is combined with a freshness and complex component.

Its fresh bright yellow reminds us of the ripe grapes just before the harvest. On the nose it captivates with its exceptionally spicy nutmeg note and exotic fruit aromas (kiwi, mango, lemon blossom), while on the palate the fine acidity and balanced structure make for a lasting impression on the finish.
