Heated Wine

Heated wine is a characteristic product of Abruzzi. The most ancient written document mentioning "heated wine" in Abruzzi dates back to the early 19th century, but it is likely that this tradition has been handed down over the centuries from generation to generation.

Current Production Area in the Park: It is produced within the Park territory in Abruzzi, in particular in the areas characterized by wine growing.

A traditional product of Regione Abruzzo and the Marches, heated wine has an alcoholic content varying according to the production method and the ageing period. It can be dry or sweet for the presence of sugar remains, but it maintains a sapid aftertaste. It has a characteristic color, going from amber red to garnet red, and an intense perfume. It derives from the processing of must obtained from the pressing of white and/or red grapes which, poured into a cauldron and boiled, concentrates of 40-70%, becoming a product appreciated as a dessert for its particular tasting features. The ageing period in wooden barrels is essential and can last for over 30-40 years.

Product Availability: It is for sale all year round, although quantities are limited.
