This moscato wine jelly from Prunotto Mariangela is a unique way to boost your next wine and cheese night! The honeyed fruit flavor of one of the Piedmont region’s most famous wines is captured in this golden jelly, a delightfully unexpected counterpoint to a salty sheep’s milk pecorino or fresh ricotta.
The Piedmont’s fertile vineyards are best known for two different wine styles that are almost perfect opposites: the heavy, rich reds barolo and barbaresco, and the mildly sweet, sparkling white moscato. While moscato grapes are used to make cloyingly sweet dessert wines in many parts of the world, Piedmontese moscato is sunny and ephemeral. With light bubbles and the aroma of fresh stone fruits, it’s an elegant, easy-to-drink white. No additional flavorings are used to make this jelly, which captures the character of this distinctively delicious wine.
For decades, Azienda Agricola Prunotto Mariangela has been growing and preserving organic fruits and vegetables in Alba in the heart of the Piedmont region. In the northwest of Italy, Piedmont shares a border with France and Switzerland. It’s a region that is reknowned for its agricultural bounty, home to decadent specialties including white truffles, barolo, and arborio rice. In keeping with their dedication to their home, the Prunotto Mariangela farm is completely self-powered by solar panels that reduce their carbon emissions and keep the land pristine. Their preserves are famous across the country for their high quality and traditional recipes.
