Mio passo Appassimento Nero D’Avola DOC Sicilia - 75cl

What is Appassimento ? 

Appassimento wines have been made in Sicily for many centuries. Making wine in an Appassimento style follows the local tradition of drying fruits and a proportion of the grapes are dried before being vinified 

The grapes are left to dry for 3 to 4 weeks, after which time they have lost around 30% of their weight. As the water in the grapes evaporates, the sugars concentrate and the alcohol level becomes a little higher. 


The very best Nero d’Avola grapes are selected from Belice and Agrigento on Sicily’s west coast, which are two of the island’s key areas for growing Nero d’Avola.

 The grapes are very carefully hand picked and then left to dry to concentrate the grape flavours before under going a gentle vinefication process with frequent pumping over to extract the maximum amount of flavour and colour from the grapes.

The bouquet is very intense, with deep notes of dark cherries, damsons and blackcurrants. 


The bouquet is very intense, with deep notes of dark cherries, damsons and blackcurrants. The palate is powerful, yet approachable, with silky smooth tannins, great depth of flavour and layers of complexity. Match with rich meat-based pasta sauces, red meats and mature hard cheeses.
