Description

Sweet wine made with grapes harvested between the end of August and the beginning of September, then hung to dry for approximately 6 months in a well-ventilated ancient tower dating back to the 1700s, following the traditional local “picaio” method. The result of such a process is an amber-colored wine, rich, pleasant and balanced on the palate, with intense and complex aromas of jam, ripe peach, toasted almond, honey, aromatic herbs and candied fruit.

Harvest

Grapes harvested by hand in wooden crates at the beginning of September.


Vinification

After the drying period, the whole grape bunches are loaded in the press, and then pressed for 8 hours with a constant pressure of maximum 2 bar. The resulting grape (yield of about 30% of the original weight), is fermented with native yeasts in concrete tanks. Following the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is transferred into old French oak barriques where it concludes the remaining alcoholic fermentation and all the malolactic one.


Ageing

At least 12 months in old French oak barriques. Afterwards the wine is bottled with or without filtration depending on its conditions.
