The 2013 Alto Adige Baron Salvadori Baronesse Passito (375 ml) is a stunning wine that offers profound aromatic intensity. The perfumed grape used here is Moscato Giallo, and the fruit was air-dried before being pressed, resulting in a more opulent taste profile. This dessert wine is heavily redolent of honey and candied fruit, with touches of brown sugar and maple syrup at the back. The mouthfeel is extra dense and viscous, with just enough acidity to keep the wine from feeling too heavy. A precious 3,000 bottles have been produced.
