History With Malvasia it is among the oldest varieties existing in our peninsula, spread all over the region. Almost all Italian wines called Moscato are actually made from this vine. The name Muscat, then translated into Italian, is probably due to the Latin spelling muscum, which indicated the characteristic scent of moss emanated from the grains of this vine. In ancient times they were called anathelicon moschaton by Greeks and Apian from the Romans.

Notes Needs: Moscato is one of the most demanding vines in the field, even though it is distributed in a vast area. But in the same region, even a few hundred meters away, the conditions favorable to affordable crops and the obtaining of truly valuable products cease to exist. This is particularly controllable in the Italian region where it is most important for both production and world renown of the wines that they obtain, namely Piedmont, or rather that hilly complex, which is largely in Provence. Of Asti, Alessandria and Cuneo, and has center for Canelli. It should be noted that the altitude of this area ranges from 100 to 400 meters; However, most Moscato grapes are between 200 and 280 meters. Geologically, the soils are almost all belonging to the Miocene, and above all to the Miocene (Langhiano-elveziano), and to the upper Miocene; Only a much smaller part of the lower Pliocene (or Messinian). The so-called tufacei-marnian soils are predominant, and in them the white tuffs (limestone); But also those in which the clayey, grayish-blue rocks prevail, often alternating with sandstone soil, which give compactness almost as building stones; On the other hand, with shelves of loose, sandy or pebbly materials.
