Moscato di Scanzo is​ a red grape variety native to Italy. Now rare, it is essentially confined to the hills around Bergamo in the Lombardia (Lombardy) region.

Wine style: Moscato di Scanzo is an aromatic red grape that resembles but is different from Moscato Nero or Aleatico, two red-berried varieties it is often confused with. Ian d’Agata described it as always refreshing, vibrant, and with lavendar notes.

Synonyms: Moscato Rosso and Moscato Nero are not acceptable synonyms for Moscato di Scanzo.
