VIGNETO GIARDINO…WHY “ASCIUTTO”??

_DSC4260

“As with the 2015 vintage, the Vigneto Giardino has the word ASCIUTTO on the label instead of DRY, which is permitted by European law. Legally, both words have the same meaning, asciutto being the Italian word for dry (English) and sec (French).
Nothing has changed in the wine production, in its taste profile (except normal vintage specific character), provenance, labels layout or colors.

The word asciutto in Italian (pronounced “aʃˈʃutto”) refers to anything you eat or drink that leaves your palate both clean & dry. Asciutto therefore refers to something that has a perfect balance between all components of the taste (saltiness, sweetness, fattiness, acidity, etc), pleasing all parts of the palate and leaving a clearly dry sensation.” E.V.
