Moscato Passito, Cantine Viola, Calabria, Italy

Country: Italy

Colour / Style: Sweet

Featured in: Episode 4

As selected by: Francesco Mazzei

In the love ‘em or hate ‘em world of pudding wines I love this as much as Matthew Rhys… struggles. Unashamedly rich, mahogany palate-lacquer of raisins, fruit cake and sweet nuts. I’d happily have this instead of a pudding, or perhaps with a few pastries, nuts and a very short espresso.
