According to tradition, during fermentation in barrels from one hundred thirty-six liters, to the Furmint, Harslevelu and Muscat grape must are added different sizes (called puttonyos, twenty kilograms each) of grapes aszú: grapes left to dry on the vines until the full development of noble rot and then collected one by one. Depending on the amount of grapes aszú added in fermentation, Tokaji reports on the label 3, 4, 5 or 6 puttonyos.
