Tasting Notes

The traditional, time-honored “Appassimento” process has been used for centuries, historically from Italy’s Veneto region in the production of its famous Amarone reds. Here, the technique of drying grapes on the vine, is applied to rich, ripe grapes in Puglia instead. This concentrates the fruit to almost unbelievable levels, and results in a wine that’s unctuous, bold, and delicious!

The 2020 Bastioni della Rocca Puglia Appassimento is powerful and dark. Aromas of sweet cherries and red plums are woven together with earth, tobacco, grilled herbs and hints of leather. Full-bodied and smooth with soft tannins a lingering depth of flavour on the finish.
