The Appassimento Rosso Puglia is a full bodied wine made from carefully selected Negroamaro, Malvasia Nero, Merlot and Cabernet grapes. Producing a wine that is full bodied, rich and complex. Lots of complex and fruity flavours with notes of ripe dark cherries, fresh herbs and vanilla.

The grapes are prepared following the Appassimento method. Appassimento is most famous for the unique style of some of Veneto’s best loved wines, including Valpolicella Ripasso and Amarone. It is the process of drying grapes in ventilated drying lodges (fruttai) over the winter months.

Through the drying process the grapes lose around 30% of their water content, the sugars and flavour compounds in the grapes are concentrated. In addition, acidity decreases while resveratrol (the compounds linked to antioxidant properties in wine) and glycerin levels increase, lending balance, richness and a unique ‘glossy’ texture to the wines.

The Appassimento Rosso Puglia is presented in a beautiful wrap around paper cover.

    Appassimento is a much under rated wine, This particular one in one of our favourite reds, full bodied but not to heavy and enjoyable with most dishes, my partner who is vegetarian also rates it and enjoys it with any vegetarian meals
