During the beginning of October, the grapes reach optimal ripeness and the winemaking process commences at the vine. In the vineyard, the withering process takes place by cutting the petiole of the grapes, but leaving them on the vine for a further 15 days. During this period, the grape’s weight is halved through the evaporation of liquid. This drying process adds typical notes of ripe fruits to the wine, such as plum and raisins. Following the drying period the grapes are handpicked and pressed before the fermentation process begins. After the grapes are pressed, the juice and the grape skins are left together for an extended period of time, this is to enhance the extraction of flavours and provide the characteristic red colour. The final part of the winemaking process is to leave the wine in barrels for approximately 3 to 4 months – this aging adds pleasant notes of spices and vanilla. Our Casa Marrone Appassimento has a powerful and intense flavour, while remaining soft and approachable on the palate. Produced from hand-picked grapes, it has a balanced oak character with notes of mature dark cherries, plum, chocolate and Madagascan vanilla and spices. Enjoy this powerful and prestigious Appassimento wine, paired beautifully with grilled dishes, creamy pastas loaded with parmesan, cured meats, or as the Italians would say: “vino da contemplazione” – “wine for contemplation”. The signature “spago” on Casa Marrone bottles is handmade, and along with the red seal is placed on every bottle. “Spago” is Italian for straw and is often used on the bottles of traditional Italian wine.
