Il Passito is a wine for kings and queens; rich, unctuous and complex. An elegant and nuanced honey sweet dessert wine, made in the fine sauterne style. A regal dessert wine made from overripe grapes which develop Botrytis cincerea, or "Noble Rot", shriveling the skins and enhancing sugar, acid and flavor intensity. The resulting harvest in late autumn is vastly diminished in yield, then barrel-fermented and aged for 2 years, becoming more concentration and flavorful.
