Passito produced from one of the oldest vines in the world, Moscato Bianco. The passito is a very ancient wine which is now produced with the modern system of ‘appassimento’ (grape drying). The grapes are picked when well ripened at the end of August and are then dried in the fruit cellar. When half their weight has been lost, about 40 days later, the grapes are pressed and the must thus obtained, particularly rich in sugars, ferments slowly at 18⁰C for more than a month in stainless steel vats
Grape: Moscato Bianco
Appellation: Noto DOC
Tasting: The six weeks of drying guarantees a high concentration of sugars and some natural transformation of the grapes contributes to the extraordinary aromas of apricot, rose petals, papaya and quince. Sweet and fleshy in the mouth, but also lively with citrus notes. It recalls nougat and candied ginger.
