Spanish term (also tostado = roasted, dried) for a wine similar to a Trockenbeerenauslese, which is made from dried grapes. After the grape harvest, the grapes are stored in warehouses and roasted in hot air ovens. Vinification does not begin until January of the following year. The wine corresponds to the Italian Passito.
In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
