HISTORY OF COOKED WINE
Flavors + Knowledge talks about the different cooked wines available in Italy. Particularly widespread in Abruzzo and Marche, you can cook wine from the Montepulciano grapes and Sangiovese and Maceratino. Begin by boiling the must slowly (in the past made in copper pots but currently replaced by stainless steel) for about 10/12 hours. During cooking, stir continuously, thus eliminating the foam produced from time to time. Once cooked, the liquid - now concentrated - is decanted into oak barrels and left to age for at least five years. Traditionally, prepared in autumn, during harvest season, with very ripe grape rich in sugar content. Often consumed as a sweetener instead of beet sugar, cooked wine offered health benefits against seasonal ailments and a medicinal decoction when mixed with water and honey. Read more.
