MOSCATEL ROXO 2001

DOMINGOS SOARES FRANCO PRIVATE COLLECTION
D.O.C. MOSCATEL ROXO

Domingos Soares Franco created an exquisite dessert wine produced from the Moscatel grape variety in its purple version: the Moscatel Roxo. This grape variety is extremely rare and was even risking extinction; its unique purple colour, aroma and palate makes the distinction from the white Moscatel variety.
