This is a very well-known sweet wine recommended to accompany the region’s traditional desserts, especially the dry almond pastry, or to drink with fruit salad. It is made from grapes left to mature almost until they wither, with a minimum percentage of 85% coming from the Moscato bianco vine (which, in Puglia, is often called “Moscato di Trani” or “Moscato reale").
Two types of Moscato di Trani are produced: “sweet” and “fortified”. The first has a golden yellow colour, an intense aroma, a sweet, velvety taste and an alcoholic strength of 12.5%. The second (fortified wine) is aged for at least a year and has an alcoholic strength of 18%. Both should be served in dessert wine glasses at a temperature of 10-12°.
