  4. Le Passule Vino Passito Val di Neto IGT

Le Passule, which means "raisins" in the local dialect, provides an idea of what the ancient Greeks enjoyed in their day. Made entirely from Mantonico Bianco grapes that are dried for fifteen days until they become raisins with concentrated sugars and flavors.  Half the grapes are dried on the plants to achieve the intensely concentrated dried fruit characteristics, while the other half are dried in a temperature-controlled room to preserve freshness and acidity.

Tasting Notes

A beautiful golden color, Le Passule shows aromas of dried apricots, almonds, figs, and orange peel.  On the palate, the wine is elegant and creamy with flavors of citrus peel, dried apricots, and figs.

Food Pairing

While delicious on its own, Le Passule is an excellent accompaniment to pastries, almonds, cassatta, or baklava.
