Luca Passito

A sweet wine made from Arneis grapes, the “Luca” Passito testifies to the extraordinary versatility of the Roero’s famous white variety, among the few in Italy to be used for dry, sparkling and dessert wines. In the vineyard, the bunches are pruned in September to stop the transfer of nutrition from the plant to the fruit, then left late, until November, to dry out naturally. The grapes are processed in the winery following traditional techniques, and the wine ages at length in wood. The end result has an amber colour, characteristic nut and candied fruit aromas and an inviting, soft and delicately balanced palate. An intense wine, perfect for sipping on its own or for pairing with fruit and dessert at the end of a meal.
