Pagnoncelli Folceri Winery

Description

Moscato di Scanzo is the smallest DOCG wine label in Italy and it is obtained by an aromatic local grape dried and botrytized. The Pagnoncelli Folceri family produced its first Moscato in 1962, contributing to save this precious grape type. Today, the overall production consists of 1.200 bottles per year, also including a red table wine produced using Merlot and Moscato di Scanzo grapes. The winery is located inside Villa Pagnoncelli dwelling, a XVII Century building decorated with beautiful frescoes and vintage furniture. Moscato di Scanzo is a meditation wine and perfectly pairs dry pastries, special chocolates and blue cheeses. 


Moscato wine cultivation has been a family passion for ever. It started out as a bet in the Fifties by Giancarlo Pagnoncelli (third-generation chemist), who began to grow just a few vines in the home’s garden. The first production consisted of six bottles, then it became larger and larger during the Sixties; since then, it has involved every member of the family, starting from Giancarlo’s son Maurizio Pagnoncelli Folcieri up to his grandchildren, who have been taking care of the grapes and the dissemination of this special wine for a few years, besides taking part to each grape harvest. A couple of years ago we have also added a red table wine called Ombra Rossa, which we used to make only for personal consumption: it is obtained by Merlot grapes (90%) and Moscato di Scanzo grapes (10%).

Pagnoncelli Folcieri settled in Scanzorosciate around the middle XIX Century. Giancarlo Pagnoncelli Folcieri (third-generation chemist) produced his first Moscato di Scanzo wine from a vineyard located in a favourable position on the hills, an area that could still be defined as “première cru” and that was formerly known as “the priest’s vineyard” and the “chemist’s vineyard” later. The limited bottles production ensures the wine’s highest quality and makes it a vintage and precious product. The winery is located inside Villa Pagnoncelli, near the hill where the grapes grow. We are proud to say that our wine was on Popes’ ad kings’ tables.
