DULCIS

Fattoria del Pometo

Type of wine

vino liquoroso (fortified wine)

Grape varietals 

Trebbiano and other traditional white varietals harvested in September-­October. 4000 vines/ha; yield 12,000 kg/hectare

Soil type

medium mix, clayey­‐sandy, deep

Vinification

the must is treated using the fortified wine method: the 24 months aging in oak casks and barriques confers a noteworthy added value to the wine

Colour

brilliant, intense topaz

Bouquet

recalls orange blossoms, with a delicate scent of almond and candied fruit

Flavour

soft on the palate, it is warm and delicately alcoholic; finish is very long with notes of dried white fruit, apricot and fig

Alcohol by volume

16%

Consumption

given the oxidation arising from the vinification process, the wine can be kept for many years; even after opening the bottle, it will keep well in the refrigerator for many months. Serve at room temperature or refrigerated

Food affinities

custard­‐based desserts, pies and dry biscuits (“biscotti”); thanks to its dry finish it also goes well with patés, soft cheeses, Gorgonzola and Roquefort

Focus

a sweet wine made more prestigious by its long wood aging which confers a sweet texture and dry finish; for this reason it does not overpower the palate; on the contrary it pleasantly leaves the palate clean and light

Anecdotes

in the past it was called Vin Santo but was changed to Dulcis following the EU directive on fortified wines n.753/2002 that no longer allows the use of the name Vin Santo for fortified wines

Label

the engraving depicted on the label is part of the bas­‐relief decoration on a 16th century wafer iron on display in the Lungarotti Foundation’s Wine Museum
