New wine in Stock:

Collefrisio Appassimento 2016 Abruzzo, Italy – This blend of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo (60%), Sangiovese (20%) and Merlot (20%) is initially dried on the vines, with extended ageing on the skins after fermentation to further increase flavour and colour. Heavy, concentrated and intensely sweet-fruited, with notes of raspberry combined with dark chocolate, hints of vanilla, and velvety tannins (This was stainless steel fermented and no oak was used).

Despite the sweetness it’s technically dry so pairs beautifully with meat dishes with fruit sauces, or tomato-based dishes.

Appassimento is the Italian process of drying harvested grapes, traditionally on wooden racks or straw, to concentrate sugars and flavours before pressing and fermenting the dried grapes to make wine. It’s central to the winemaking of Amarone and Recioto, and a precursor to Ripasso.

Abruzzo is Italy’s fifth-leading wine region, after Sicily, Puglia, Veneto and Emilia-Romagna. A beautiful, hilly place, with an extensive Adriatic coastline, its lush landscape is patched liberally with parks and forests. Abruzzo’s winelands are ideally situated between the sea and the Apennines mountains (including 2,895m-high Gran Sasso). Montepulciano and Trebbiano are the most important grapes.
