Vincotto (mosto cotto)

The reduction of grape must is in fact used both in the preparation of sweet motions, such as the wheat of the dead (cicce cuotte or muscitaglia) and the cartellate, and to enhance the flavors of some savory dishes.

Vincotto is a long preparation, obtained by reducing the must extracted from the pressing of grapes, before it begins the fermentation phase.

The ancient recipe sees the addition of quince apple that, thanks to the high content of pectin, accelerates the cooking processes.
