This Sicilian Rosso Appassimento combines two distinct local methods. The Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are left on the vine longer than usual—the most gentle and natural Appassimento process through dehydration while still on the vine. The Syrah grapes are dried for 3-4 weeks on the vine. As the water in these grapes evaporates the sugars concentrate and the alcohol level becomes a little higher. These Syrah grapes are vinified separately from the Bordeaux varietals, then they are blended together. The result is a distinctive, rich, bold, complex, yet highly approachable red.

Why We Love It

Italian Wine With Character

The Traveling Vineyard wine team loves offering special process Italian reds. The Appassimento technique dates back to the times of the ancient Romans, and is the process of natural partial dehydration of grapes to produce a greater concentration of colors, aromas and flavors in the wine. The result is a distinctive, rich, bold, complex, yet highly approachable red that you’ll be sure to love.

I tasted this for the 1st time at a tasting, I enjoyed it the 1st time and it was delish! But Baby! We returned back to Armatura to finish the bottle, after the tasting....and YUMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY! It smoothed further and all of the fruit as described came forward even more!

Outstanding Sicilian Blend

Loving this with a good charcuterie board. It's taste like a dark chocolate covered cherry with a lingering finish. Delightful to say the least.
