Moscato dello Zucco
2009
2008

It was Henri d’Orlèans, Duke of Aumale, in the first half of the 19th century, who gave fame to this wine produced on the estates of Contrada Zucco between Partinico and Terrasini, Sicily. Considered one of the best Moscato wines in Italy, it was extremely popular in most of Europe. Today it makes a comeback with Cusumano cultivating the 100% Moscato Bianco grapes in the same places that made it unique, with limited production in the past. The grapes are ripened between the sun of the open plain and the wind of the sea: this is Moscato dello Zucco, precious nectar.
