Muscadel Wine Information



This common white variety is known by many names, from Muscadel to Muscat to Moscato to Moscatel. Two of the official names for the grapes include Muscat Blanc and Muscat Canelli. Its flavor is, of course, musky!

Most people know of Muscat because it is the base white wine in Asti Spumanti, the sweet bubbly sparkling wine from Italy. While most people turn muscat into sweet dessert wines, you can actually get a dryer version if you look hard enough.

Note that Muscadel is quite separate from Muscadet wine.
