Vinification and maturation
Appassimento means "drying process". Arele is the local name for the traditional wooden tray where the grapes were drying for a certain period of time. For Arele Appasimento, the grapes are dried for 30 to 40 days before being pressed. Then the wine ages for 12 months in barrels of Slavonia.
Robe of an intense ruby red. On the nose, this wine has notes of black fruits and pepper. On the palate, it is rich, unctuous, digestible and fruity, with a nice finish on the spices.
