"Without Ceres and Bacchus, Venus is made of ice" declared once the Roman playwright Publius Terence Aphro. Dessert wines require a particular processing of grapes, it is known in fact that sugar contained in the grape is the main source of sweetness, however every kind of wine will be processed in a different way. Dessert wines include raisin wines, so called because they are produced with dried grapes harvested later than the traditional harvesting period, a type of grape which is sufficiently mature in order to evaporate water and therefore increasing the concentration of taste and sugar present in every grape. Dessert wines sometimes make use of additions of alcohol, spices, grape must and aromas in order to reach the desired level of sweetness.
Why Buy Dessert Wines Online
When choosing a dessert wine, the basic rule is that a wine should be as sweet as or more than what is being eaten. Desserts that go well with a sweet and raisin wine are all those made of short pastry or leavened dough, such as cookies and tarts. Most of spoon desserts, instead, find in sweet sparkling wines their proper companion. Among the most appreciated matching between wines and desserts there are surely: the traditional couple formed by cantucci and vin santo; the classic one between panettone and moscato d'asti; and finally, chocolate desserts, both dry and creamy, are exalted by the particular Barolo chinato.
