Astoria Ventus Moscato Di Sicilia is made from Moscato grapes grown on Pantelleria, a small island off the coast of Sicily, which are dried before being pressed to concentrate and intensify their sugar and acidity levels. Once the fermentation reaches a certain point, grape spirit is added to arrest the action of the yeasts. Fortifying the wine in this way to stop the fermentation leaves around 130g of residual (unfermented) sugar per litre of wine, hence the sweetness of this Ventus Moscato Di Sicilia.
