Cooked Grape Wine

(Vino cotto can also be prepared with the must of grapes)


10 kg of white or red grapes


Rinse the grapes. Discard grape-stalks. Drain thoroughly and dry the grapes on a kitchen towel. Place them in a large saucepan. Cook until thickened. Pass them through a sieve to obtain as much liquid as possible. Pour the liquid in a separate saucepan and continue cooking until it becomes almost solid. Pour it in bottles (previously washed) and cork the bottles. Keep it in a cool and dry place.
