Passito Aleatico PGI Lazio wine is produced from an aromatic black grape vine, the aleatico. According to etymological studies, its name recalls the adjective “Hellenic” in honour of Greece in which a similar variety is cultivated. The particular drying method used for aleatico grapes is carried out directly on the vine and not on trellis after harvesting. Grapes stay on the vine more than the usual time required for ripening, being exposed to natural and climatic agents that trigger specific chemical reactions. This leads to an extremely pleasant wine, with a soft and sweet taste and a bouquet with clear floral scents. The colour is red ruby with violet shades.
