Luigi Giusti Visciola carries on a centuries-old Marche tradition of making dessert wine with cherries. The production is actually quite complicated. Two varieties of cherries are processed separately with half being dried in the sun for 40 days. Wine from the current vintage of Lacrima is used as a base wine, but the fermented cherries are not pressed, rather, a ripasso process is employed with some wine from the previous vintage. Sour cherries are then also utilized with residual sweetness retained. The resulting dessert wine has a potent sour cherry profile with a balancing tartness in the Italian tradition.

Winemaking Notes:
The wild cherries used to make Luigi Giusti Viscole come exclusively from the Marche region. The production of this typical drink from the Marche region involves two fermentations, during which the sour cherries are never pressed in order to maintain the freshness of the aromas. In the first step, the sour cherries, harvested when slightly over-ripe, ferment in demijohns placed in the sun for 40 days. At the end of this period a syrup and the spent sour cherries are obtained, which are re-fermented separately for 3 weeks with Lacrima grape must. Two products of different sweetness are thus obtained, which are blended during the bottling stage.
