From Liguria in Italy’s north, south to the island of Pantelleria (between Sicily and Tunisia) unique Passito wines are made from dried grapes, as they have been for centuries, since the era of the Phoenicians.

The dried fruit was pressed, yielding only about half the juice as is normal.  It was filled to barrels allowing the native yeasts to slowly ferment, after which it was aged for almost a year.  The golden yellow color is a result of not using any SO2 until bottling.  

Bottled in April 2014; 12.9% alcohol, pH 3.69, TA 7.1 g/l & RS 92 g/l

"Full body and powerfully fruity flavors make this sweet wine seem extra bold. It smells like toasted almonds and dried meat and tastes like poached peaches. A smooth but lively texture keeps the flavors zinging on the finish."— Jim Gordon
