Small is beautiful. Our journey with Rare Wines takes us through the rows of the smallest DOCG in Italy, Moscato di Scanzo, in the province of Bergamo. We are talking about a sweet red wine produced in very few bottles, in total there are about 50,000 divided among 30 producers, for a total area of 30 hectares. Among these, we have identified a gem produced by Sereno Magri, an authorial sweet wine, rich in spicy and bitter counterpoints.
We like to pair it with another great sweet red wine, Aleatico Passito. In this case, we move to the Island of Elba, 5 nautical miles from Piombino. Among enchanting bays, there are vineyards of aleatico, for a wine that summarises sweet, balsamic and herbaceous notes in an unforgettable gustatory experience.
