(Mos-cato) The moscato variety belongs to the muscat family of grapes – and so do moscatel and muscat ottonel.
Food pairings: Moscato shows best on its own: without food but sweet wines will pair with dessert.
Districts: moscato grows in most vine-friendly climates, including Italy, the Rhône Valley (where it is called muscat blanc à petits grains) and Austria (where it is called Muskateller).
Typical taste: often sweet and always fruity, with a characteristic grapefruity and musky aroma. Moscato wines are easily recognizable to anyone who has tasted a Muscat table grape.
