Sweet, "Passito" and Fortified Wines

Sweet, “Passito” and fortified wines

The sweet, “passito” and fortified wines constitute a fascinating category full of variety, capable of satisfying even the most demanding palates. This type of wines can be produced in different versions, both white, rosé and red, and can be obtained through fermentation, drying or fortification processes. Passito wines, for example, can be sweet or dry, and are made from dried grapes. There are three types of drying: natural on the plant, natural after grape harvesting and forced. These methods give the sweet wines a unique concentration and complexity.

Sweet sparkling wines

The sweet sparkling wines are a delicious expression of the encounter between sweetness and freshness. Among the most noble wines in this category, we find Moscato d'Asti from Italy, with its aromatic fragrance and balanced sweetness. Another example is Vernaccia di Serrapetrona Dolce, a sweet sparkling red wine from the Marche region. We cannot forget the Colli Euganei Fior D'arancio DOCG Dolce, a sweet sparkling white wine from the Veneto region. These wines offer a unique tasting experience, combining aromatic and sparkling characteristics with pleasant sweetness.

Passito wines

passito wines, also known as meditation wines, are rich and complex, often characterized by an enveloping sweetness. Among the most famous dessert wines, Italy offers a wide selection of prestigious denominations. Amarone, Torcolato, Vin Santo del Chianti, Recioto di Soave DOCG and Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG are just some of the Italian examples. In addition to Italian wines, there are also the renowned ice wines, from countries such as Hungary and Austria. These passito wines offer an extraordinary aromatic complexity and a sweetness that blends harmoniously with the other flavors.

Liqueur wines

Liqueur wines are characterized by a higher alcohol content and often by a marked sweetness. Italy boasts some of the best fortified wine denominations in the world. Marsala, with its centuries-old history and versatility, is one of the most famous fortified wines. Zibibbo, mainly produced in Sicily, offers a rich aroma and an elegant sweetness. In addition to Italy, countries such as Portugal with its Port and the island of Madeira offer liqueur wines of great value. These wines stand out for their complexity, their intense character and their ability to enrich any tasting moment.

Characteristics of a sweet sparkling wine

A sweet wine with bubbles is characterized by a harmonious sweetness and a pleasant liveliness of the bubbles. This unique combination gives the wine a freshness that balances the sweetness, creating a unique tasting balance. The aromatic scents and fruity notes are combined with the elegant effervescence, making the wine a refined and pleasant experience for the palate.

Characteristics of a passito wine

A passito wine is characterized by an intense aromatic richness and a concentrated sweetness. The grapes, subjected to natural or forced drying, concentrate their sugars and aromas, giving the wine a unique complexity. Passito wines are distinguished by notes of ripe fruit, spices, chocolate and caramelized notes, offering a pleasant persistence on the palate.

Characteristics of a fortified wine

A fortified wine is characterized by a higher alcohol content than traditional wines and by a more pronounced sweetness. This combination gives the wine a full body, an enveloping texture and a richness of complex aromas. Fortified wines are distinguished by notes of dried fruit, honey, caramel and spices, offering a satisfying and luxurious taste experience.
