Moscato di Noto is a wine to begin with, as an aperitif, which is notably aromatic. From single-variety Moscato Bianco grapes, it is harvested slightly early and vinified in such a way as to leave no sugary residues. Cultivated among the white soil of the Buonivini estate, whose limey soils are shared with perfumed almond groves, and representing the Sicilian version of the aromatic wine so widespread today.

ClimateThe final judgment on the 2012 vintage is more than positive with peaks of excellence in Vittoria and Noto and in Menfi and Sambuca for the red wines.
ClimateThe winter at Noto was very dry and even the spring had little rainfall. Because of this we thinned out the Nero d’Avola vines a little more than usual. Eventually the harvest was very cool and this has provided a full, dense and not particularly alcoholic Nero d’Avola. The Moscato is aromatic and distinctive.
Time of Harvest
