Aristocratico Appassimento Salento14.5% ABV
Full-bodied and rich with ripe, jammy fruit. Deep ruby-purple with an expressive nose of ripe plums and raisin. Concentrated and rich in the mouth with a velvety smooth texture, this Appassimento shows developed notes of dried fig, spice and tobacco. Ideal with rich cheeses.
From the Salento area of Puglia. The Rosso Salento grapes are dried on wooden racks until they have lost around one third of their weight. This can be a few months before the richer, more concentrated juice is then pressed from the fruit. This ‘appassimento’ method of production results is powerful flavours.
