Urban Park Appassimento 2018

Montresor Urban Park Appassimento 2018

Veneto, Italy - 2020

14% ABV 

Authentic Veronese Appassimento from the classic Valpolicella varieties, predominantly Corvina, dried for 30 days and aged 6 months in oak.

Tasting notes

Bright berry and black cherry aromas, and a touch of spice. The palate has all of Valpolicella's appealing fresh cherry and ripe bramble fruit, along with added weight and complexity from maturation in oak. Supple tannins lead to a finish of delicate sweetness, offset by fresh acidity.

Food match

Great with barbecues, slow-cooked and caramelised meat dishes, or strong-flavoured cheeses.

Production

Produced from Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes harvested from hillside vineyards north of Verona. 'Appassimento' refers to the process by which the grapes are dried for a few months before being pressed and vinified - this technique is more common in the Veneto than elsewhere in Italy. In this instance the grapes are dried for 30 days before vinification, and the wine spends 6 months in oak. The resulting red is rich with some residual sweetness.
