This estate is owned by the Marenco family, from whom we buy the Contero wines. When Michela showed us the Moscato Passito from her family estate in Strevi, we quickly discovered that her father had bought the vineyard from the great Domenico Ivaldi when he retired. His rare Moscato Passito was one of the greatest wines ever and Patrizia, Michela’s sister, has carried on the great Ivaldi tradition. The grapes were hand harvested and then laid on special racks to slowly dry under the sun. Approximately 50 days after harvest, by which time the grapes have lost about 50% of their original weight, the grapes were gently pressed. The juice underwent a long fermentation on the skins, stopping naturally when the wine reached 13% alcohol.
Straw yellow in colour. A wine of great intensity, this Passito is deliciously rich and concentrated finishing with luxuriant notes of dried apricot on the finish.more ↓ less ↑
