Description

Rivera Moscato di Trani Dolce Piani di Tufara 2007 is a brilliant golden yellow dessert wine, redolent of apricots, sultanas, candied citron, and iodized nuances. It offers a balanced and sweet palate supported by lively acidity and delicate mineral notes, leading to a long persistence with fruity references. It pairs excellently with cream cannoli, dry pastries, and almonds, and is ideal for enhancing the flavors of blue cheeses, such as gorgonzola.

The Rivera estate is located in Apulia near the town of Andria. Rivera is in the heart of the Castel del Monte DOC, which takes its name from the splendid castle built by Frederick The Second at the beginning of the 13th century. This area is known for the characteristic plateau of tufaceous and calcareous soil named ‘Murge,’ and the vine has flourished here since the times of Magna Grecia. Centuries of experimentation and selection have developed indigenous varieties that are perfectly suited to the local terroir and hot weather: Nero di Troia, Montepulciano, Aglianico, Bombino and Pampanuto.Sebastiano de Corato founded Azienda Vinicola Rivera in the early 1950s. His son Carlo continued focusing on Nero di Troia and Montepulciano for the reds but also started experimenting with non-indigenous white grapes such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon. A long period of testing the adaptability of such Northern varieties to torrid Apulia was necessary, but the venture ultimately led to very successful results. The inclusion of such varietals in the Castel del Monte DOC represented an important step for Rivera and for Apulian viticulture as a whole. Carlo’s sons, Sebastiano, and recently his brother Marco, have joined their father in the management of the estate.
