The Romans knew Moscato and called it Apiana because bees loved it. We call it Moscato because flies love it (mosca = fly in Italian). Latin names are sometimes more poetic. But both are attracted to the sweet, aromatic, musky aroma that froths out of the glass. I particularly love this with Christmas pudding.
