Passri Pineto Brachetto d'Aqui Passito DOCG
Piemonte

This passito is made from Brachetto grapes cultivated in the single vineyard Pineto on Strevi hills. Grapes dry slowly, laid on special racks, under the sun. After few weeks, they are stored in the porch, where the roof protects them from the rain. 40 to 60 days after the harvest, when the weight of the grapes reduces by about 50%, they undergo a soft pressing in order to obtain a juice very rich in sugar.
