"Sadly for the great dessert wines of the world, the general public’s inclination is trending toward wines that taste drier and drier. As Tintero’s Moscato so poignantly demonstrates, this could prove to be the biggest mistake in the history of trends since fanny packs, mullets,* and popped collars. Have a sip of this delectable nectar—what possibly is there not to love? Who could resist such a heavenly ambrosia, with its scent of kaleidoscopic spring wildflowers, fragrant citrus blossoms, and succulently ripe grapes? It is just sweet enough, but not too sweet, while a razor-crisp acidity and tickling spritz cleanse and stimulate the taste buds with each gulp. There is simply no better pairing for panna cotta, cobbler, or spicy chicken wings on NFL Sunday. This may be the forbidden fruit of Eden, partially fermented and bottled for our quaffing pleasure."  Anthony Lynch

Moscato is the sparkling and aromatic wine typically drunk at parties and festive events. It comes from the grape-pressing of the harvest of one single vineyard with a prominently positioned slope towards the south of south-west. Its bouquet is complex and aromatic with a taste balanced by a soft, convincing and velvety sweetness.

The farm and vineyards of Elvio Tintero are located in the steep but extraordinary hills of Mango in the province of Cuneo in an area called Località Gramella. The Tintero family has been tending the grapevines of this hillside area for three generations - ‘‘Symbol of Familiarity and Prestige’’.

The Tintero Company in presently being run by Marco and Cinzia. Elvio, father of Marco, counting on the potential of Moscato grapes as well as the optimal position of his vineyards (south and south-west), decided to expand his wine production and experience in the eighties. At the same time, the Controlled Denomination of Origin Association (D.O.C.) was reaping its first fruits in aiding the development and protection of this product. In 1993 Moscato reached top levels regarding protection and quality thanks to the D.O.C.G. initiatives.
