Of Vino condito. chap. 187.

WIne is made by craft of good spice∣rie and hearbes, as it fareth of the Wine that is called Saluiato, and of the wine that is called Rosatum, and Gan∣ohlatum. And that wine accordeth both in meat and in medicine, for vertue both of spicery, and also of hearbes chaungeth and amendeth this wine, and giueth ther to a singuser vertue, and therefore such Wines be wholesome and liking, when wholesome spicerie & hearbes be incorpo∣rate there, in due manner. For vertue of spicery kéepeth & silueth wines, that they be not soone corrupt; therfore such wines with their sauour please the tast, and ex∣cite appetite; and comforteth both the braine and the stomacke with their good odour and smell, and cleanseth also the bloud, and thirleth into the inner partes of the veines & of the members, as Isaac sayth.

(*Compound Wine with spices, is called Ipochresse, whereof is redde and white.)
