LUCI DEL TRAMONTO
This wine was born to mantain the local tradition who predicts that every farmer makes his own dessert wine for celebrations or just to be served to the most important guests.
The most beautiful cone, almost all of Vermentino, are hardly choosed during the harvest, pushed and fermented.
In the end this must is filtred in a “calza” ( a vertical cloth filter) and for Christmas it is ready to go on tables, maybe a little bit oxidized but sweet.
In that time almost all the fermentation was made in jugs, because every farmer made just the one tenth of the entire production of this wine.
Today we wait for the best grapes of Vermentino, Albarola and a little part of Malvasia, to get ready. At the end of the harvest we pick them up, we leave them vinifying on their own with a fast transfer in the marcs and after a month of fermentation we arrive to bottle 3 000 bottles per year.
The light alcoholic gradation about 10 degrees, the good sugar percentage and the sustained acidity makes this wine perfect for dessert.
To the eye seems yellow straw coloured, cleat and compact. To the nose we have a good intensity and a persistence gift by : the big range of flowers, a pleasant candied fruit and bakery.
To the mouth the sweet sensaion (amabile) is combined with a good freshness, and a right alcohol give to this wine a perfect final persistence.
In conclusion the perfect conformity mouth-nose makes this wine an elegant interpretation of his type, classic dessert wine.
