To produce Fustanova, the best Alexandria Muscatel grapes are selected from established vines cultivated in the heart of the ‘Valencia Muscatel’ sub-region, the climate here governed by its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea. The grapes are picked by hand in the early hours of the morning using strict selection criteria to ensure that none of their natural properties are lost.
The wine comes from the free-run juice, obtained with no mechanical pressing, after a short cold maceration to extract the highest aromatic expression from the grapes. The wine is then kept for three months in new French Allier oak casks where the fruity features of the wine combine with the wood.
Recommended with foie, cakes, crepes suset and every kind of desserts.
The wine is of a pretty golden yellow colour and translucent appearance. Its bouquet reveals aromas of citrus fruits, sweet rich notes and impeccable toasted wood undertones. It has a pleasant assault, elegant touch and bombastic mid-palate, where acidity and sugars combine harmoniously.
