Passito

Canthus 2016

  • Tasting notes

    This lusciously sweet “passito” is rich and golden in colour with a concentrated aroma reminiscent of lychees and other tropical fruits and spices (ginger, cinnamon and cloves); opulent on the palate, ambrosial with mouth-cleansing acidity to balance the opulent sweetness and a monumental finish.

    Cellaring potential: 5-10 years.

  • Food Combination

    Drink this Passito with foie-gras, puddings and blue-veined cheeses. 

    Serve lightly chilled: 10° C.

  • Location

    Selected site at an average altitude of 450 metres a.s.l. Soils are dry, medium-rich, morainal with a mixture of sand and gravel.

  • Yielding
    18 hl/ha
  • Wine Making

    The fully ripe and sapid grapes are picked shortly before the beginning of the winter. The grapes are then fed by hand into the press and the juice gently squeezed out. After being allowed to decant naturally, the clear juice is left to ferment for several months at around 16° C. The wine is subsequently bottled carefully, a year after the harvest.
