The Passito: Our Dried Grape Wine

The “passito” is the product that complete our big range of wines. A very particular product which is created with the red-berry-fruit of the “raboso veronese” vine, that makes this passito different from the others.
The grapes harvested in late October are put on a particular “mat” where they are allowed to dry in a temperature and humidity controlled room until the new year. This particular method permits the fermentation of the fruit just with the addition of a particular yeast called “Premium Zinfandel”.
However, the hard winter has made difficult for us to control the fermentation temperature which happened at about 22°C.
The new wine is now resting in our “tonneaux” tanks made of Slavonia oak, a particular wood that permits a constant oxygen exchange with the outside and a slow maturation.
