Fiorebella Rosso Appassimento
Intense ruby-red, with a nose of cherry, dried black fruit, chocolate and prune; the palate is full-bodied, soft and round, with a sweet spiciness and lingering finish.
Grapes: Corvina, Merlot
After hand picking, about 60% of the grapes are placed on wooden crates in a well-aerated loft and left to dry until December. During this appassimento process the grapes will lose up to 50% of their original weight, in water, concentrating the colour and flavour compounds. These dried grapes are removed from the stems and undergo a slow, long fermentation. In February, this wine is blended with the undried-fruit fermentation, 50% of this blend is aged in American and French barriques for 12 months.
