Caluso Passito DOCG

The origins of Caluso Passito go back to Roman times, but over the millennia it became part of the tradition of the Canavese families, each of which owned a vineyard with some Erbaluce vines. From these vines, before harvesting, the most beautiful and sparse bunches were collected and placed to dry on the racks of the attics as fruit for the winter. In these specially ventilated passitaie the grapes remained until March to then be pressed: From this moment the long fermentation and refinement process of Caluso Passito began, which found its maximum expression after long years of aging. Among the great admirers of Caluso Passito there was at the end of the 19th century a great Canavese: Giuseppe Giacosa, known for all as Pin. Playwright and librettist of Puccini, author of the plots of La Bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly loved his vineyards and his wine and recommended that it was convenient to welcome guests with an excellent glass of Caluso Passito. This ancient nectar is dedicated to him.
