The Appassimento case is a collection of some of our best selling reds and all happen to be produced using the Appassimento process. This process is the partial drying of the grapes before fermentation, which concentrates the colour, aromas and flavours in the wine. You could call these wines baby Amarones at a third of the price. The resulting wines are concentrated, rich with a very slight sweetness - utterly delicious and dangerously easy to drink!

Many of our customers are familiar with Neropasso. Just like an Amarone, the grapes used are air-dried first to concentrate the flavours and allow the sugar content to rise. The result, a powerful juggernaut of a wine that has a beautifully poised slight sweetness that defies the tiny price.The bouquet is spicy with hints of cherry, black cherry and plum compote. A fine palate, velvety, persistent, with soft tannins at the end.

The Baglio Gibellina is an intense and warming Sicilian red with a bit of extra richness. The fruit for this is grown in vineyards at the hot, western tip of Sicily from a blend of 70% Nero d'Avola and 30% Frappato grapes. The Nero d'Avola grapes were left to hang longer on the vines before picking to encourage a light withering and natural de-hydration which gives the finished wine an extra concentration of flavours. There are bright, intense red fruits aromas on the nose with a deep, rich, warming, full-bodied palate of dark cherry, raisin and sweet spice leading up to a lovely smooth and silky finish.

Last but not least, Duo Rosso from Marcato is an Italian red wine created as a collaboration between two renowned winemakers in Veneto. It was the hit wine of our most recent Christmas tasting event, we nearly couldn't keep up with the orders for this wine. It's a harmonious combination of dried grapes from Amarone production are blended with Cabernet Franc to make a surprisingly soft, yet rich wine with red berry fruits, hints of coffee and a lingering finish.
