Passito for our Immaculate

Gravis, the Malvasia of Botromagno for our immaculate we made a welcome gift. The festivities are pressing, the Christmas air, the warmth of the family, and especially the sweets typical of the Apulian tradition. From the almond paste to the most traditional leukaemia sweets, as well as to the panettone and Pancotti now typical of the most local tradition, the Italian and Apulian dessert, these days, will begin to accompany the salted libations on the pre-Christmas table. Let's start from the day of the Immaculate Conception. A day of Catholic dogma, proclaimed by Pius IX in the distant 1854, is associated in the world of food and wine with the best culinary traditions of our beautiful country. Here we list, among the various regions, the most popular dishes: chest and pucce, Pan T, Muffuletta, onion pie, Sfincione, Torroni and panettone various and the list could be lengthened to a different extent. The Passito in the tasting we have combined with a typical sweet Apulian dish that in its dialectal mention, could open a debate on the various facets of etymology and lexical subdivided by provenance: "The Purcidd". Very similar to the Neapolitan Strufoli (I do not want the Apulian, but it is necessary a comparison to encourage the comprehension to the reader allochthonous), the Purcidd are made like the Taralli, with a form to Cavatello and then immersed in honey. Their characteristic is that they must be eaten with their hands and then-as tradition-licking the greasy fingertips of residual honey. What better opportunity to combine a passito of Malvasia from the Cantina Botromagno di Gravina di Puglia (BA) as an excellent sweetener to the already well-known dish of tradition. The Passito is presented with a colour of candied orange. Notes clearly citrus are released from the chalice. The temperature of the service allows to breathe in the air excellent aromatic hints typical of the vine vinified after a good overripening. Soft, young, lively, in short, a sorprea, because the bottle dates back to the harvest of 2008. It is a versatile wine, presented in an unusual and original bottle, more typical for Central American Rum. As you know the Augustine family is far-sighted, looks and looks beyond, even the boundaries of what is called the quality of an exceptional wine in its balance. The acid tips are excellent counterpart to its softness; The gratification of the palate is excellent. We are only at the immaculate, the parties are long, and we are very happy to be able to stay in the company of this beautiful bottle of Gravis. Good immaculate.
