Roccese Rosso

Acquavite Roccese

The care in the choice of the freshly pressed marcs with the scents of the wine from which they come, allow to obtain delicate hues of flavour and smell.

This kind of high proof liquor, called “Aigavite”, was jealously kept in every house and given in case of blackout.



Roccese Bianco

Passiu

It's made from bunches of red and white Roccese dried on the vine by twining the bunch.
After the harvest it is laid on a cane fence and stirred until its full maturation.
It reached our grandparents' tables during the village's feasts, especially if guests included the mayor or the priest.
It was served in small doses along with local desserts.
