The Passito Wine “Foco d’Ambra” is produced with the utmost respect for tradition. The bunches of this precious meditation wine grow at more than 2 metres of height in an ancient vineyard tree-trained to maple and ash: the Chioppi vineyard, which took three years of labour between 1943 and 1945 to the single man who planted it by hand. The bushes of long Malvasia of Chianti and Tuscan Trebbiano are left to dry for over 4 months. The juice extracted from them is a concentrate of sweetness that ferments and rests for over 5 years in small wooden barrels.

The Organic Raisin Dessert Wine Foco d’Ambra has a shiny amber colour, with intense notes of vanilla, apricot and roasted coffee. It tastes smooth, candied and warm on the palate, with a spicy finishing aftertaste.
We recommend tasting it with savoury chesses. Classic meditation wine.
