SWEET

The history of the sweet wine is the history the wine itself. From remote times man drank wine to satisfy thirst and to find pleasure in its “magical powers”. The craftsmen of the wine from the ancient Greek and Rome tried to reach a level of sweetness that satisfied the palates of that age. They maximized the amount of sugar from the grains of grape drying them in the sun before the fermentation and then they would sweeten the wine even more with boiled grape juice and honey. The result must have been, with out any doubt, a product with a extremely viscous texture, in the way that with that amount of honey that was added, the last taste depended most of the type of flowers from witch the bees have taken the pollen to elaborate the honey, more than from the wine itself.
