Hekate Feudo Arancio

Hekate was the Greek Goddess who bestowed kindness and wealth. She also acted as a guardian of youth. 

From Sicily, the land of ancient history, divinity and hidden treasures, Feudo Arancio introduces its new Passito wine. 

The grapes are dried naturally until they become raisin-like making them highly concentrated with natural grape sugars.

GRAPES: variety of aromatic white grapes 

WINEMAKING: 
After ripening occurs, the grapes undergo a natural withering process of about 4-6 weeks. At the end of September/beginning of October the grapes, now completely dried out like raisins, are softly pressed. The must extracted is rich in sugar and aromas and is set aside to ferment in stainless steels tanks at controlled temperatures for 7-8 months. Refinement in the bottle occurs for a minimum of 4 months before the wines are shipped into the markets. 

CHARACTERISTICS: 
The bouquet of aromas Hekate offers is a myriad of sensations that start from the first note with dried flowers and chamomile, to white-fleshed peaches, dried apricots, honey, and spicy herbs. The final note is persistent with balsamic vinegar and sweetened tastes. 

PAIRINGS: 
Dessert wine, shows its best features with traditional Sicilian sweets like cannolis, ice cream cake with candied fruits, amaretti (almond flavored cookies) and pistachio flavored desserts. Perfect also with baked desserts like fruit tarts, walnut cake and hazelnut cookies. For a more creative pairing, try hard semi-sharp cheeses or tropical fruit. 

SERVING TEMPERATURE: 
Serve at 14-16º C, in a tulip-shaped dessert wine glass. Open at the moment of consumption.
