'Passito di Noto' Planeta 2019 - 50cl

Planeta's Passito di Noto is a velvety and full-bodied wine, born from Moscato grapes harvested at the end of August and dried for about 40 days before vinification. The result is a golden yellow in the glass, accompanied by intense notes of papaya, yellow fruit, candied orange and orange blossom, ginger and hints of almonds. The sip is sweet and well balanced, with a pleasant fruity persistence
