Miopasso Appassimento Sicilia DOC

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. We use two distinct methods of Appassimento :

On the Vine: The grapes are left on the vine longer than usual, giving the most gentle and natural Appassimento process through dehydration on the vine.

In racks: The grapes are left to dry on racks for 15 days until they have lost 10-15% of their weight.
