Aleatico Grape may be Used for Muscatel Wine

The Aleatico grape (a variety of the muscat grape) is considered suitable for use in the production of muscatel wine. Accordingly, a wine which derives its predominant taste, aroma, and characteristics, and at least 51 percent of its volume, from Aleatico grapes may be designated as "Muscatel Wine."
