Vallone Appassimento

Tax included.

Proper Appassimento with a ripe, Southern and lightly savoury twist, this Puglian red comes from Vallone’s Tenuta Serranova Estate, the home of Graticciaia, the region’s most famous Appassimento-style wine.

Produced from 100% Negroamaro grapes sourced from a 10ha vineyard with soils rich in clay and limestone, just 3km from the Adriatic. Following the 'appassimento' process, the grapes are late-harvested, left to dry naturally on the vine before being pressed and vinified. This increases the concentration of sugars and produces wines with slightly higher alcohol and residual sweetness. The grapes are gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel, with malolactic fermentation in concrete - where the wine is left to rest for around 8-10 months, followed by 3-4 months in bottle.

Vallone Appassimento wine has aromas of black fruit, mocha and spice. The palate has layers of ripe black cherry, bramble, dried fruit and coffee. Rich with residual sweetness and balancing acidity. Lovely served with rich meat stews or lentil dishes, grilled and barbecued food.
