Wine Maker Notes
The best whole, perfectly ripened bunches are hand harvested in early September and carried to farmhouses where they are left to dry on traditional straw mats called “arelle,” a process which raisins the grapes and concentrates the natural sugars. After approximately 120 days, the grapes are pressed and slow fermentation begins at a low temperature. Fermentation continues until the sugars have been completely converted to alcohol.
An outstanding match with roast meat and game, as well as hearty, flavorful cheeses served with figs and nuts
