Danielle says

Appassimento wines are really in right now as they are a rich, slightly sweeter style because of the way they are made. For this wine, when the grapes are perfectly ripe they twist the stem of half the grapes so that they receive no further nourishment, inducing a natural drying of the fruit on the vine for about 2 weeks. If you imagine eating a raisin - you get more richness and concentration from a raisin than a fresh grape, which is exactly what you find in this wine. 

To sniff there are lots of cherries, raspberries and redcurrants mingled with a roasted, spicy aroma. A full-bodied style but still supple with layers upon layers of dark fruit flowing through to the long finish. Perfect with roasted red meats, game and hard cheeses.
