VINEYARD: Aleatico 100%
WINE OUTPUT: 30%

DRYING OUT: The grapes mature on the trellises with the temperature and humidity controlled daily.
WINEMAKING: Carefully monitored temperature, maceration on the skin for about 12 days, with a delestage and three manuals pumping over every day.
ALCOHOLIC FERMENTATION: About 8 months in stainless steel
AGEING OF WINE: In bottles

Sight: Very consistent and deep colour with the typical Passito’s wine tones.
Smell: Powerful, rich in floral perfume (dried violets) and fruity (sour and black cherries jam).
The result is a perfect balance between sweetness and acidity. It’s better to drink it cold, at 11°/13° degrees.
Turan is the perfect wine to serve with cakes, refined pastries, dried fruits, and chocolate. Interesting is the ideal match with matured, herbs and spicy cheese. We can definitely define the Turan as a beautiful meditation wine.
