Made in the passito style, with grapes sundried on racks.  The wine is then fermented in stainless steel tanks and barrel aged for 6 years before bottling, giving a richness and depth to this surpringly dry wine, which could almost be mistaken for sherry.

Well chilled, this makes an elegant dessert wine particularly suited to chocolate based dishes.  Alternatively the Macaro could be served at room temperature with a variety of blue cheeses.
