Sweet passito wine with concentrated aromas of mango, pineapple, honey and caramel. A delight! Decanter Gold Medal
This is a truly delightful 100% Muscat dessert wine from Sardinia, made in the traditional Italian passito method. This technique is used to create sweet wines with incredibly intense flavours. Grapes are harvested early, when they are still full of fresh acid, and dried in the cellar. As the water evaporates, the sugar and flavours in the grapes become more concentrated. The fermentation process begins in winter. All of the sweetness in this wine is natural: there is so much sugar in the dried grapes that the yeast can’t convert it all into alcohol. A true masterpiece, it was awarded the very prestigious Decanter Gold Medal in 2019 as well as numerous other awards.
Tasting notes: “A floral and gently tropical fruit nose with intense flavours of mangos, pineapples, acacia honey, apricots, peaches, cooked pears and caramel. Well made with good acids to keep this fresh and zippy. Great texture and length.” – Decanter.
Ageing potential: 12 years.
