This sweet nectar is produced with the same vines used for the white dry wines, Bosco, Vermentino and Albarola. The Albarola has a harder skin and a sparser bunches is perfect for withering. During wine picking the most beautiful grapes are hung up in dry cellars among the vineyards for 2 months, then, at the beginning of November each grape is hand selected and separated from the stalk. The must so obtained has a high concentration of sugar that will produce a sweet and high grade (approx. 17) wine.
