Vincotto Sweet Lemon 100ml

Vincotto (meaning ‘cooked wine’) is a dark and dense condiment from Puglia. It is sweet, intense and luscious in texture. The bouquet has nuances of prunes, spices and grape. Sweet Lemon has a natural lemon flavour from the infusion of lemon zest.
Use vincotto to add depth and a sweet element to sauces, stews, risotto and to dressings for vegetables, salads, grilled meats and poultry. It can also be used in desserts.

Description

Vincotto is un-fermented and undergoes no acetification. Therefore, vincotto is NOT a vinegar. It is made from 100% grape must using two species of black grapes, Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera, which are left to wither on the vine for 30 days beyond ripening, a practice known as ‘passito’. This over-ripening process vastly decreases the acid present in the grapes and the naturally occurring sugars become more prominent.

The grapes are pressed, and the must is then reduced to one-fifth of its original volume over a low flame for at least 20 hours. The must is transferred to oak casks. This exposes the must to the very old “mother” vincotto, which imparts its own characteristics to the younger must. The must is aged in these oak casks for a total of four years, allowing the taste to develop consistently. The use of oak is particularly traditional in Lizanello. In fact, the word Lizanello is derived from the Italian word for oak.

Vincotto Originale enhances the flavours of any dish. Use with roast meats, poultry, risotto and fish. It is an excellent addition to desserts such as pannacotta or baked ricotta cheesecake.
