Full golden color made even more brilliant by the elegant, fine and persistent perlage. The intense aroma releases fl oral perfumes of magnolia, jasmine, white roses and acacia as well as fruity notes of lemons, tangerines and white peaches which tantalize the nose. On the palate it is at once creamy, soft and well-balanced with a pleasant freshness and fullness of flavor. Well-structured with an enduring finish – complex, rich and persistent. A perfect wine for the aperitif paired with appetizers or after the meal with desserts, fruit tarts and light pastries

Vinous: 91 Points

"The 2015 Maeli Spumante Moscato Fior d’Arancio Colli Euganei is an extremely successful wine that speaks clearly of Moscato Giallo, showcasing the variety’s typical candied citrus peel and pungent yellow flower notes well, combining these with a clean, savory mouthfeel and long finish."

Winery Profile

About the Winery: Nestled in the Euganean Hills, a group of volcanic rolling, cone-shape slopes that rise above the Padovan-Venetian plane, is one of the region’s fastest emerging leaders in top quality wine production – Maeli. The winery is directed by winemaker Elisa Dilavanzo, who has drawn new energy from the support given by Gianluca and Desiderio Bisol. With their vision, Elisa has been encouraged to search for new expressions in a grape variety, Moscato Giallo, that still has so much to reveal. The variety of the land, the steepness of the hills, the varying exposition of the vineyards and the p eculiarities of the micro-climate motivate Elisa to continue to explore and research every aspect of winemaking in this unique land and ancient varietal.
