Cantina di Negrar, Appassimento
Appassimento is the process of natural partial dehydration of grapes to produce a greater concentration of colors, aromas, and flavors in the wine. Since partially dried grapes also have a higher concentration of sugars, this system is often used to make sweet or very concentrated wines.
“Appassimento” is made from indigenous red grape varieties. Following a thorough and rigorous blending process, both the appassimento and traditional methods are fused together in the production of this fine red wine.
The 2019 harvest began about ten days later than in previous years and with volumes reduced by 15-20%
compared to 2018. After years of great heat in the final ripening phase, in which the sugar accumulation was
privileged over the aromatic one, we finally had a year in which the low temperatures, combined with day/night
excursions, allowed an excellent accumulation of coloring substances and a good acidity. Despite the heavy rains
of May, the grapes were healthy and loose, therefore particularly suitable for appassimento. The wines denote
more territorial expressions of greater longevity and freshness.
