MUFFATO DELLE STREGHE Umbria White Sweet I.G.T.

30,00

Strongly wanted by the Countess Susanna and encouraged by the female staff of the Winery (Pom- ario’s witches), the Muffato delle Streghe (Witches), an unusual name for a special wine, is an alcoholic nectar harmonious and well structured with
the presence of honey, spices, candied fruits and caramel thanks to the Botrytis Cinerea (Mould). It is a Sweet wine excellent for desserts but can be also paired, thanks to the important structure,
with Foie Gras, Seasoned and Spicy Cheeses. The Vineyard, planted in 2010, with its
terraces descending towards the woods, is ideal, thanks to the Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc vines, for the production of this kind of wine. In Autumn the fog remains still on the terraces until the end of the morning, creating a bewitched atmosphere and clears slowly towards the woods leaving space to sunny and windy afternoons. The Botrytis Cinerea requires specific climatic conditions: fog in the morning and sun in the afternoon because without a perfect balance between humidity and heat this mould doesn’t develop.
The harvest lasts several weeks since it requests the selection of the grapes that have reached the right amount of mould.
The wine rests in wood for 2-3 years before being bottled only in 0.5 lt format.
