Le Ricordanze®

Salento IGP Passito

This raisin wine was another big bet of Cosimo Taurino when planted in Puglia the Rhenish-German Riesling and French Semillon. The vines grew slowly in the Salento, so that the first vintage to be bottled was the 2002.
Unfortunately, the one who had wanted so much to believe in this bet, in 1999 he left us. Is dedicated to him this wine, Le Ricordanze.
It’s a dessert wine, from complex and very intense bouquet due to late harvesting of the grapes (late August) which determines a high concentration of sugar.
