I.G.T. Umbria passito
The complexity of the grape varieties of strong aromatic connotation such as Moscato, Sauvignon blanc and Viogner, the uniqueness of our soil's characteristics and the patient work of the sun are woven together to give grapes that are full, juicy and of rich extraction. The wine obtained from this has an old gold colour with amber tints. To the nose flavours of dried fruit, jam, ripe apricots and candied orange alternate with hints of honey, almond and vaguely vanilla notes. It is enveloping, round and full on the palate, with a good flavour that balances its sweetness and enhances the olfactory sensations.
Accompaniments
It goes with dried fruit, dry and stuffed desserts, puddings and almond sweets. It is also excellent with soft cheeses and marbled cheeses like gorgonzola. Interesting as a wine to meditate with after dinner.
Origins of the name
What better way can there be to sum up a raisin wine, one of those wines that express forcefully something that is present but at the same time intangible, untouchable as the ray (il raggio) of the sun that makes a good grape!
