Appassimento Rosso Puglia IGT

Dry red wine

2017

Characteristics of a land of passion and strength are evident in our Appassimento (rasinate): Apulia. The grapes, traditionally grown in Apulia are not harvested like the others but are left on the plant. In this manner, the ripening process continues, the grapes overripen and wither on the vine; the flavour of the grapes is strengthened, consolidating the traits that characterise it. Admirable blends of grapes selected by the skilled hands of our Winemakers, the Appassimento creates a unique and irresistible character.

Detailed Information

Old method, irresistible flavour

The grapes are vinified using a drying technique that produces a denser must, within which the aromatics reach very high concentrations. The colour becomes darker and impenetrable to the gaze; it is the scent that drives one to further discover the characteristics of the must: full and harmonious, suggesting the full potential of the wine to come. In the winecellar, one can breathe the energy of the Appassimento: eager, sensual and full of promise.

That which our expert Winemakers have sought for years has been achieved with this extraordinary wine. Strong character, unforgettable personality, harmony and an unexpected delicacy, that on tasting provides all the sensory balance of a Primitivo without the harsh traits that can sometimes characterise it. The Appassimento Rosso Puglia IGT gives off overwhelming fruit aromas, mature and dry with clear notes of plum. It is full bodied and decisive, enveloping and mature in character. In short, upon further resting, this masterpiece takes on further intense characteristics that will long remain imprinted upon the memory. Not just any wine but a unique sensory experience. A perfect pleasure to accompany traditional dishes, or for sociable and relaxing occasions.
