Emporium Appassimento

emporium appasimento

Our wine selection for March comes from wine importers Enovation Brands. In making Emporium Appassimento, winemakers sought to re-create an old fashion technique. Appassimento is a method in which grapes are dried to a shrivel state, to concentrate flavors. Emporium Appassimento is made with grapes from Salento, in Italy’s Puglia Region. The area is easily identified geographically as the “heel” of Italy’s “boot”.

The winemaker describes Emporium Appassimento:

“Aromas of raisins, dried cherries and savory cranberry. Focused, medium to full body with a bounty of fruit flavor. Smooth, long, earthy finish with papery tannins and moderate oak.”

The winemaker and reviewers seem to agree, Emporium Appassimento pairs well with just about anything!
