Sciacchetrà is a rare wine, the production of which is limited. It comes from grapes of the Bosco, Vermentino and Albarola variety, carefully chosen and left for a long time to wither in the shade, not therefore subject to the effects of direct sunlight. The concentration of sugar, a by product of the formation of mould, allows a golden yellow nectar with an amber reflection to be obtained. The aroma is full and long-lasting with an elegant hint of apricot and honey. It tastes sweet, but never sickly, always moderated by its light flavour, and has an expressive note of rare finesse and personality.

The producer

Over the course of centuries the hostile natural forces in this area have been tamed by man. Dry-stone walls and terraces have changed the landscape permanently. In fact, the perfectly tuned balance between man and the environment is the most amazing and mysterious thing about this area. The Cantina Cinque Terre operates in a community spirit, carrying out the difficult job of maintaining the land, but also pricing its products.

Best with

When young, this wine is the perfect accompaniment to spicy cheeses and more substantial desserts, such as the classic "pandolce genovese", whereas when it has been judiciously aged , it is excellent to drink on its own.

How to serve it

Serve at 16 degrees centigrade in clear, transparent crystal goblets.

How to keep

This wine has an excellent capacity to improve with age. If it is kept well, it has an average conservation period of 25 years or more. The bottles should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark, humid wine-cellar.
