This sweet wine is made from grapes that wither on the branch and are harvested in late October, early November.
Thanks to the informed advice of renowned Italian wine expert, Riccardo Cottarella, Di Majo Norante produces excellent and delicious wines in the little known Molise region, in the southern Adriatic. This remarkable dessert and cocktail wine is one of them.
After slowly fermenting in steel tanks at controlled temperatures, the malolactic fermentation process is completed in oak barrels. The wine is then matured for 1 year in steel tanks and for 6 months in the bottle.
