Vinification:
After drying naturally for 30 days in special rooms, the clusters are pressed and the must ferments in small oak casks until it reaches approx. 14° alcohol. It then matures a further year.

Sensory profile:
Ronco Cucco is a rare and precious wine since the selection of grapes for its production is extremely severe. It appears gold-yellow and boasts a multi-layered bouquet of apricots, dried figs, and acacia blossom, with a hint of citrus. It is sweet but not cloying, with aromas of honey and well-ripened fruit.

Serving suggestions:
With its long-lingering sensations, it makes a fine sipping wine (vino da meditazione), but it partners well with blue cheeses, fois gras, and petits fours. Best enjoyed at 10°C.
