Doppio passo

Italian name (Eng. "Double passage") for a special form of vinification, in which two vintages take place at different times. The grapes from the first harvest are slowly fermented. The second part is harvested after three to four weeks and is therefore more mature and more concentrated. This is now also fermented. Now the two amounts of wine are mixed and again the fermentation brought. Such a wine has a big one aromas and a little higher alcohol content on. This process mainly comes in Apulia in the Primitivo grape variety ( Tribidrag ) for use. Similar procedures are Governo and Ripasso,
