This wine is made using the same method as for an Amarone—the apassimento method. Grapes are dried on straw mats over the winter to concentrate sugars and then pressed and fermented very slowly. The resulting wines are light in colour but rich in body and flavour.
Grapes: 100% Primitivo grapes, produced from vines harvested riper.
Ideal partner for strong game dishes with fresh mushrooms and well-ripened cheeses or as a wine perfect for conversation.
