The concentration of Aszú wine was traditionally defined by the number of puttony (25kg baskets or hods) of dough added to a gönc (136 litre barrel) of must. Nowadays, the puttony number is based upon the content of sugar and sugar-free extract in the mature wine. Aszú wines range from 1 puttonyos to 6 puttonyos in sweetness, with a further category called Aszú-Eszencia which is the undiluted free-run juice of the Aszú grapes.
