Collefrisio Appassimento 2021



This blend of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo (60%), Sangiovese (20%) and Merlot (20%) is initially dried on the vines, with extended ageing on the skins after fermentation to further increase flavour and colour.

Heavy, concentrated and intensely sweet-fruited, raspberry coulis combines with dark chocolate and velvety tannins to create an experience akin to liquid raspberry ruffle.

Despite the sweetness it’s technically dry so pairs beautifully with meat dishes with fruit sauces, or tomato-based dishes. It also goes surprisingly well with Tiramisu although we’re not supposed to admit we tried it!

Producer: Collefrisio

Organically-farmed Collefrisio, the project of third-generation winemakers Amedeo De Luca and Antonio Patricelli, is located in the hills of Frisa, Chieti province. The charming azienda vinicola (wine farm) features a huge loft nestled among the vineyards that contains a magnificent wine tasting and dining room for the many epicurean events that Collefrisio runs over the year, while its quiet, peaceful cellars lie underneath the vines.

Indigenous Montepulciano and Trebbiano d'Abruzzo are the stars here, alongside high quality Pinot Grigio, and a range of more artisinal, small production wines including Appassimento, sparkling wines of Abruzzo and an intriguing wine and sour cherry liqueur.
