NV Uvaggio Vermentino Passito
Vermentino produces an aromatic and flavorful wine perfect as an aperitivo or with a meal. However in this instance, the grapes were dried to produce an ancient, Mediterranean-style sweet wine. This technique dates back a few mellenia before Christ, when ‘raisinated’ wines were first produced and highly coveted. By the 1st century A D, in Latin they were called Passum. In contemporary Italian - passito - echoes this ancient term. It is enjoyable with an aged cheese at the end of a meal.
