Known by many names, this grape’s official French name is Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, which translates as ‘Muscat with small berries. In California, the name Muscat Canelli is common, derived from Moscato di Canelli, a name used in Italy.
The Lanza Muscat Canelli greets you with a tropical nose highlighting peach, honey, and citrus. On the palate, you’ll get apricot and orange flavors. The sweetness from the residual sugar is balanced by crisp and light acidity. It’s wonderful with fruit plates, ice cream, sorbet, or pecan pie. If you chill it, it makes a refreshing aperitif on a summer day.
