“Visciolata della collina" is a wine-based drink, flavoured with sour cherries.
The sour cherry is a wild cherry and is the key ingredient, along with sugar, grape juice or wine, and it is characterized by an intense aroma of cherries and a deep red color.
This is a traditional wine produced in the region of Marche. Historically, Duke Federico from Montefeltro, according to his biographer Vespasiano da Bisticci, "almost did not drink wine if not wine from sour cherries."
It was later considered a wine for women, for its bouquet, softness and roundness. Today it is considered as a dessert wine, to be drunk mainly with pastries.
The production of this wine is based on the preparation of a syrup made with sour cherry and sugar and sugar.
Grape must is added during the harvest time. Fermentation goes on for several days, during which the fragrance of the wild cherry enriches the wine.
