Ecrù is a natural passito produced with Zibibbo grapes. For the vinification of this prestigious label, Firriato uses the method of infusing raisins into wine, an absolute peculiarity in the Italian wine scene. The theater of this uniqueness is the Borgo Guarini withering garden. The sun and the wind that characterize the climate of the estate, with their joint action, determine the natural drying process of the bunches for almost 40 days. The slow drying favors the concentration, in each grape, of the scents of the Mediterranean scrub. The grapes are then unpacked and infused into the wine, determining the uniqueness of L’Ecrù. There are no prolonged, interrupted and distributed fermentations: the grapes in contact with the wine swell and give up their precious aromatic contribution for a passito of incomparable balance.
