Montresor ‘Urban Park’ Appassimento
Bright red berry and cherry aromas. The palate has all of Valpolicella’s appealing fresh cherry and ripe bramble fruit, along with added weight and complexity from maturation in oak. Supple tannins lead to a finish of delicate sweetness, offset by fresh acidity.
Produced from Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes harvested from hillside vineyards north of Verona. ‘Appassimento’ refers to the process by which the grapes are dried for a few months before being pressed and vinified – this technique is more common in the Veneto than elsewhere in Italy. In this instance the grapes are dried for 30 days before vinification, and the wine spends 6 months in oak. The resulting red is rich with some residual sweetness.
