Millefiori Appassimento Rosso del Veneto IGP 2015/2018 Italy

£11.76

Corvina and Merlot grapes, grown in low-yielding vineyards near the town of San Pietro in Cariano in the province of Verona, come together to produce this full-bodied and succulent wine. The Corvina grapes go through a rare winemaking technique called appassimento, where by the picked grapes are placed in small wooden crates of 5 kg each. The crates are then placed in the ‘fruttaio,’ a well-aerated loft, and are left there to dry at a control temperature and humidity until December. During this ‘appassimento’ the grapes will lose up to 50% of their original weight in water.

This ‘drying process’ will concentrate their colour, substance and aromas. 12 months in American and French oak. The wine has a lovely and intense ruby-red colour with a bouquet reminiscent of cherries, dried fruit, chocolate  and prunes. On the palate it is full-bodied, soft and round, with a pleasant spiciness and an amazingly long and lingering finish.

Try with aubergines & peppers Szechuan style, venison with chunky vegetables or braised beef with olives
