“Ultimo Grappolo” is an aromatic white raisin wine of moderate alcohol content and excellent structure.
The method of drying grapes to increase the alcohol content probably comes from the island of Pantelleria, native land of the most popular raisin wine in the world. How this technique reached the Piedmont region is unknown.
The only certainty is that in the past, during years with particularly bad weather, the Piedmont wine-makers’ custom was to leave the clusters attached to the vines until they began to wilt; the withering process serves to concentrate the sugars and all the other substances, thus creating a considerable increase in the quality of the product.
Later the wine-makers noticed that, using this technique, they could obtain a very sweet and colorful liqueur-tasting wine, with a pleasant flavor of raisins. This is how the production of raisin wine began and over the years it has grown.
The production of sweet wine in Piedmont is now quite limited because the processing is lengthy and requires meticulous care, furthermore not all vintages are ideal, which is why many manufacturers have chosen not to produce this type of wine.
However, the process of drying grapes has been perfected and continued by some growers, strong-willed men, who manage to obtain excellent products from these aromatic grapes. Products which attain recognition in national and international competitions.
