Tenuta Ulisse Vino Cotto Antonio NV 50cl

15% abv

Amber yellow color, complex and elegant nose with hints of raisins, walnut husks, dried figs, carob and licorice. In the mouth it is full, warm, persuasive and with a very long persistence. Brilliant with extra-mature spicy blue-veined cheese, small cakes and melted dark chocolate, pastries with nuts and with all traditional Abruzzo’s specialities.

Made in honour of Noon (grandpa) Anotonio – Nonno Antonio’s love and passion for Vino Cotto is lost in the mists of time. Well aware of a tradition to carry on, Nonno Antonio wanted to dedicate himself personally to the preparation of Vino Cotto. He chose the oak wood to be seasoned to feed the fires which slowly reduced the must, obtained from the pressing of the Montepulciano grapes. Fermented in 2nd & 3rd pass barrels and aged in barrel for minimum 36 months.

Vincotto (translated as “cooked wine”) is a dark, sweet dense condiment produced artisanally in the Puglia/Apulia region of southeastern Italy. It is made by the slow cooking and reduction over many hours of non-fermented grape must until it has been reduced to about one fifth of its original volume and the sugars present have caramelized. It can be made from a number of varieties of local red wine grapes including Primitivo, Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera, collected after being allowed to wither naturally on the vine for about 30 days.
