Tasting Notes

Copper-tinged medium dark gold. Showing effusive aromas of dried stone fruit, orange citrus, and acacia, this is a gorgeous sweet wine, creamy and lush on the palate with excellent freshness and bright acidity that easily balances the 169 g/L RS. The palate shows hints of dried apricot, honey, and toasted nuts. An outstanding wine best consumed with a rich, creamy cheese. Partly dried on the vines and partly harvested very late, the Picolit is matured in barriques of oak and acacia. While the Perusini Picolit is sweet, the variety is also used to make dry wines. It’s also used in white blends like Jermann’s Vintage Tunina and Livio Felluga’s Illivio.
