Cantine Di Ora Amicone 2018
A lovely Appassimento style wine, where the grapes are dried in wooden crates for about 120 days. The result is a wine with aromas of red and black fruits on the nose with a twist of spice. The palate is rich and intense with blackcherry, chocolate and a long spicy finish, smooth and satisfying.
The drying process of the grapes in the production of this wine is so important to call this stage the “second harvest”. The healthiest and ripest grapes are picked in early October, dried on large wooden boxes at a constant temperature and humidity to avoid mould. The drying process lasts about 120 days and increases concentration of sugar. Slow maturation in oak barrels gives notes of sweet spices and chocolate.
