Candoni Moscato is fruity and fragrant, with aromas of fresh nectarine and honey, followed by sweet and refreshing flavors of ripe peach and apricot. Its sweetness and acidity are perfectly balanced by the low-alcohol content and light bubbles. Pairings
The harmonious combination of crispness and fruitiness makes it a perfect accompaniment to pastries, cakes, fruit salads, desserts, cheesecake, and spicy dishes. Also delicious with ice cream, or on its own as an accompaniment to conversation among friends. Combine it with fresh squeezed orange juice for delicate Mimosa or try our refreshing Candoni Sweet Cocktail.
The De Zan and the Candoni families have been involved in winemaking since the late 1800’s. After having lived in the U.S. for 12 years, Armando De Zan, Elviana Candoni and their daughters Barbara and Caterina, have dedicated themselves to produce and export Italian Wines around the world.
"We are an Italian, family-run winery, committed to excellent winemaking for over one hundred years. We feel great pride and gratitude for the magic land we come from and want our Candoni Painted Bottles to be a celebration of its beauty and culture that the Ancient Romans started 2000 years ago. All our bottles are painted with a technique called serigraphy, which is a method of using ceramic natural colors melted on the glass of the bottle to create a unique piece of art. With our bottles, you will have the chance to bring home a piece of real Ancient Roman art, as each bottle represents an original fresco painting found on the Roman walls."

Containing an exciting mix of wine producing subregions, Lombardy is Italy’s largest in size and population. Good quality Pinot noir, Bonarda and Barbera have elevated the reputation of the plains of Oltrepò Pavese. To its northeast in the Alps, Valtellina is the source of Italy’s best Nebbiolo wines outside of Piedmont. Often missed in the shadow of Prosecco, Franciacorta produces collectively Italy’s best Champagne style wines, and for the fun and less serious bubbly, find Lambrusco Mantovano around the city of Mantua. Lugana, a dry white with a devoted following, is produced to the southwest of Lake Garda.
A term typically reserved for Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply “NV” on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage Champagne, typically the current year’s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called “vins de reserve” are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single vintage.
There are also some very large production still wines that may not claim one particular vintage. This would be at the discretion of the winemaker’s goals for character of the final wine.
