Fior d’Arancio Passito – DOCG Colli Euganei

Introduced in Veneto ever since the thirteenth century by the Venetians, it is only in the Euganean Hills that the Fior d’Arancio muscat grape keeps its so strongly Mediterranean character, cheerful and vigorous.
Intense aromas, thick and colorful skin, crunchy pulp, are the hallmarks of this archaic variety that likes bright and dry sites.
It’s a farmer’s tradition to harvest the ripest grapes and let them dry on racks in the old barns with the dual aim of producing a strong sweet wine and rustic cakes for the spring-winter festivals.

Grape varieties
Fior d’Arancio 100%


15 % vol.

In Faedo on euganean marl, in Val Cengolina on trachytic sand.

After 2-3 months of drying, the grapes are crushed and left in maceration for a few days. From the further pressing a thick juice, gold in color and with a certain tannins, comes out and is left to ferment and evolve in oak barrels until the spontaneous stabilization.

Service and pairing
At 14-15 °C. It goes well with sweet dried fruit, or the classic Venetians “zaeti”.
Its intensity and complexity allow it to enter the category of “meditation wine.”
