Decadent aroma with hints of red and black cherry and plum compote. The fine and velvety palate is a treat for the senses with sweet dark fruits and spice leading to a persistent finish, with soft tannins.
Try this with meaty pasta dishes or aged cheeses
"A wine that's easy to love - and there's been a lot of love for Appasimiento. Once people try the expressive sweet fruit they can't wait to tell someone. It feels like a word-of-mouth success and it's quickly become a bestseller."
The wine is a blend of Corvinone 40%, Corvina 30% and Cabernet Sauvignon 30%
The Biscardo Family have been making wine from their base in Soave for over 150 years and are currently led by brothers Maurizio and Martino.
During the course of Maurizio's long and illustrious career, he has consulted for well known wineries around Italy and in doing so he came across the vineyards for their Puglian wines. Both the Pugliese and Veneto wines are characterised by an irresistible drinkability, aromatic purity and exceptional value for money.
The grapes for this wine are laid out in large perforated plastic boxes, to ensure excellent ventilation. The boxes are stacked in the fruttaio, a large airy room and the grapes are periodically monitored so that the Appassimento process takes place. A selection of the grapes are slightly wilted before the soft pressing.
