After a short over-ripening in the vineyard, the grape bunches are harvested and dried in the fruit cellar for two to four months depending on the vintage. At the end of this demanding job, the grapes are pressed and the alcoholic fermentation starts, which lasts in oak barrels of 50 and 100 litres for about two months until the alcohol content and the natural final residual sugar level are reached. The wine remains in the respective containers for subsequent refinement which can last up to 48 months. Of a beautiful bright amber colour with golden reflections, the wine has a broad and ethereal olfactory path with aromas of candied orange peel, jujube, dates, sultana and dried figs, with a finish reminiscent of dried fruit and nougat. In the mouth, it is sweet and soft but in balance with adequate freshness and slight astringencies with a hint of bitter medicinal herbs. Try it in combination with pecorino with loin and figs. It reaches full maturity after at least 4 years from the harvest and the plateau is between 5 and 15 years.
