Alido - Marche bianco Passito IGT

Specialty

Passito Alido is produced only in certain vintages, when the seasons allow the grapes to dry in the vineyard. It is produced exclusively with the Altidona vineyard grapes, where the southern exposure and its clayey soils facilitate the regular drying of the grape.
The drying takes place leaving the grapes to overripe in the vineyard (thanks to the pedoclimatic conditions of the Aso Valley).
From its soil, so arid and dry, derives the name of the passito: Alido.
