A ... come Ammasso! E' il fiore all'occhiello di Barone Montalto. Il termine Ammasso sta ad indicare una ancestrale tecnica di ammostamento che ancora oggi viene praticata sulle migliori partite di uva della Sicilia. Il vino ottenuto da parziale appassimento sulla pianta risulta opulento, potente, ma finemente equilibrato. Le note candite si avvolgono a quelle tostate regalando al palato pienezza e sensualità. --- A ... for Ammasso! It is the flagship of Barone Montalto. Ammasso means a traditional winemaking technique that still today is used to vinify the best parcels in Sicily. Ammasso is opulent but gently balanced. Candied notes and toasted hints ensure a flavorful and sensual palate. #glossariomontalto #experiencesicily #baronemontalto #winelovers #winepassion
