Angelo Appassimento Rosso 2019
ANGELO APPASSIMENTO ROSSO IGP PUGLIA 17% VOL. (2019)
A bomb by a powerful Italian! juice and sweetness elegantly wrapped in pleasant spices.
Grown among the rows of sunny vineyards of Puglia, this full- bodied wine is obtained following the traditional Appassimento method. During ripening time of grapes, bunches undergo a "narrowing" so a gradual and natural drying can occur. Then, once right sugar content is reached, grapes are harvested and vinificated. Fermentation is stopped at 17% vol. alcohol: all these conditions guarantee a natural sugar content and the right balance between acidity and smoothness.
