• Luigi & Giusti 2015 Visciola

*500ML. This dessert wine is a fun and heady mix of wine macerated in cherries. The nose shows a distinct cherry note with light cedar spice and just there sweet cherry. The palate is moderate weight with earth, some sweet cherry and a light mineral note. D&M Tasting Notes

 "Luigi Giusti’s Visciola is made in a centuries-old Marche tradition of making dessert wine with cherries. The production is actually quite complicated, as two varieties of cherries are processed separately with half of them being dried in the sun for 40 days. Grape wine from the current vintage is used as a base wine, but the fermented cherries are not pressed. Rather, a ripasso process is employed with some wine from the previous vintage. Sour cherries are then also utilized with residual sweetness retained. The resulting dessert wine has a potent sour cherry profile with a balancing tartness in the Italian tradition."
