Our Passito process of drying the grapes in the open air of the vineyard ensures a late harvest with the grapes remaining on the vine until the end of the year. Since 1989, the elegant Passito Comtess has been cherished for its intense fruit,its honey notes, and its soft and creamy body. The palate is awakened by a note of freshness given by a pronounced acidity.
