The salient characteristics of this wine derive from the highly individual way in which it is made. It is due to the fact that the grapes are left to wither on frames until December or January with the result that the sugar they contain becomes concentrated and a unique aroma develops. This process is called "Sfursat", which in the local dialect means "strengthened". The wine has a strong, grainy red colour and has a very characteristic aroma which is both ethereal and complex. It tastes full of personality, rounded, alcoholic and well-balanced.
