La Tunella Picolit

La Tunella Picolit

$90.00

This absolute monarch of wines requires no modern techniques in its vinification: after late harvesting into cases, the grapes undergo natural raisining process, with the development of noble botrytis rot, lasting approximately 60 days until the optimum natural sugar concentration is achieved. The entire grape is hand-stripped and gently pressed. The resulting must then ferments slowly and matures in 225 litre barriques, where it remains for more than two years.

 A generous and delicate bouquet of exceptional elegance, redolent of honeycomb dripping with honey from the all the flowers of the meadow, ripe fruit, peach and apricot jam, and figs. The palate is sweet but not cloying, aristocratic, warm, velvety and refined. A wine of striking breadth of bouquet

 This meditation wine par excellence is rather difficult to match with food. It is a good accompaniment for small, dry pastries and pâté de foie gras, but, as they say: “Picolit is just Picolit”. To be enjoyed on its own, with nothing else but a devout attention in an intimate conversation between the wine and the senses of sight, smell and taste.
