Muscat Canelli and Parducci Wine Cellars go way back. We’ve been crafting this fragrant, white wine for well over 30 years: some vintages as a full-on dessert wine, others as a medium-sweet wine with a flavor profile more closely akin to Gewürztraminer.
"Muscat Canelli is the wine that brought me to Parducci 25 years ago.
It is sweet but clears nicely and is, for me, the perfect sipping wine. Great with Brie and strawberries also."
- Laurel Connell, 5 Star Review on Parducci.com
Known in France as Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, the varietal is most often used in the making of sweet and sparkling wines. Parducci Winemaker Bob Swain describes Muscat Canelli as “sweet and tasty with a characteristic floral smell coming from the terpenes,” a type of aroma compound that contributes to a wine’s fruit, floral, and herbal flavors.
Of course, Muscat Canelli’s enduring appeal extends back even longer in viticulture history. Like, all the way back. Genetic sequencing has found that every noble European grape variety can trace its roots back to this enchanting wine. As in: this is the grape that begat all others.
Reminiscent of the wines of myth and poetry, Parducci Small Lot Blend Muscat Canelli is a true feast for the senses (think lychee and fresh peach). This balanced beauty is an always reliable party-starter, the perfect match for spicy international cuisine or your favorite cheese, fruit, and charcuterie tray. Yum, we're getting hungry (and thirsty!) Time to pass the apps and open a bottle.
