    Mosto Verde (Green Must), refers to piscos distilled from partially fermented young wines. On average 5 to7 kilos of grapes are required to produce one litre of pisco, however, the Moste Verde process requires between 8 to 10 kilos of grapes per litre of pisco. (In comparison, four bottles of wine can be made from the same amount of grapes). Hence, this style is expensive to make.

    Tasting note: Interesting bready / grapey aromas combine with fruity pear cider / oxidised apple-like scents in later passes. Further time in the glass finds mild wax and paraffin as the fruity aspect is muted. Oily, light to medium bodied with nicely balanced, semi-sweet fruit bread and white pepper flavours. Medium long. Better than average. 40% Alc./Vol.
