Appassimento wine comes from the grape produced almost exclusively in the southern region of Puglia. This Italian red wine is a specialty of the Salento peninsula, the “heel” of Italy’s “boot” shape. This landscape’s caressing sun and sea breeze bestow the intense fruit bouquets of the territory’s most famous reds.Appassimento refers to a process of drying out the grapes while on the vine, a tradition going back many centuries and was historically used in the Veneto region for the production of Amarone. With this, lovely Negroamaro and Primitivo grapes, are naturally dried on the vine for 25 days, which allows a higher concentration of sugar and lets the water out, combined with a long period of cement age to create a supple wine full of ripe black fruits with complex hints of raisins, spice and vanilla.
80% NEGROAMARO. 20% PRIMITIVO Ruby red with orange reflections. Intense and complex with notes of ripe fruit and spices. Dry wine with good texture and supple tannins.Perfect with spicy pasta, red meat and mature cheeses.
