Historical notes

Moscatello di Taggia is an ancient Ligurian vine, a clone of white Moscato, which takes on even more aromas and softness in Liguria. It is one of the most popular Ligurian wines over time, so much so that already in the fifteenth century it was exported to Northern Europe, appreciated at the Pope's court and by the nobility. Over the years it has been almost completely lost after phylloxera but today, thanks to some producers, the intense work of the Liguria Region in collaboration with the University of Turin, has come back to light.
