Following the classic method of Appassimento, this wine is vinified from carefully selected grapes and dried according to tradition. The resulting wine is bulky, robust, tannic, full bodied and round.
Ruby red with garnet hues; complex and mature nose, balanced with hints of fig and blueberry jam, hay, tobacco and leather; full bodied, round and persistent taste with fruity aftertaste
The 2014 is our third vintage and the higher concentration of Cabernet Franc brings an elegance with heightened aromatics. As with other vintages of our Appassimento, I'm confident it will surpass the expectations of those unfamiliar with the heights reached in winemaking in the Niagara Peninsula
To refer to this wine as special is an understatement. We set out many years ago on the journey to crafting Appassimento wines and it's a joy to realize this ambition. From the planting of the vines, and cultivating these over many years, to devising the system to best create these wines of distinction. The very name, Appassimento, conjures images of the challenges, the creative leaps we've taken, and the comradery gained in our team in creating this wine.
