Product Description

The name of this wine is derived from ‘appassimento’, the traditional Valpolicella method of partially drying grapes before fermentation. In one month the grapes lose around 30% of their water content, concentrating the juice and intensifying the wine’s flavour. A dense and deeply coloured wine, full of concentrated black and red cherry flavour, and hints of leather and spice. The palate has a layered texture, with muscular tannins providing a long finish. A fine match for osso bucco or other slow-cooked red meat dishes.
