Maculan Dindarello Veneto Bianco Passito IGT 2018 (375ml/12)
Founded in 1947 in Breganze, a small town in the Province of Vicenza (Veneto), Maculan is now at the 3rd Generation of winemakers. Fausto Maculan, who took over in the 1970s and made Maculan a benchmark producer in Italy, has passed the baton to his two daughters: Angela and Maria Vittoria. In pure Breganze style, Maculan makes wines from both native and “international” varieties, which have been introduced by the French and the Austrians in 1800, and hence here are considered traditional. ...New York, New Jersey, California
100% Moscato Giallo, an aromatic native grape of North-Eastern Italy known to be the offspring Moscato Bianco (the one used in Piemonte). Unlike its parent, Moscato Giallo (known as Goldenmuskateller in Alto Adige), has a markedly thick, yellow skin, and takes air-drying very well, delivering wines of greater complexity. It is also known as “Orange Blossom Moscato”, due to its intense flowery notes. After a manual harvest, the grapes are air-dried in-door for one month, then crushed and fermented in temp-controlled stainless steel vats. After the fermentation, the wine is filtered and bottled, and released after 3 months of bottle-aging.
Bright yellow in color, Dindarello is Maculan’s introduction to the world of their sweet wines. Intensely sweet and fruity, but complicated by a refreshing acidity and a clean finish, Dindarello offers a variety of tropical fruit aromas, followed by white flowers, and acacia honey notes. We recommend to pair it with fruit tarts, apple pies, and Chantilly cream beignets.
