Alipasso Appassimento da uve Selezionate Aleatico IGP Puglia Franco Rizzello Selezione, 2018

Italy

Grape Variety

Aleatico

I first came across the Aleatico grape in Corsica many years ago: it has an unmistakable perfumed character. Originally from Tuscany, it spread southwards to Puglia where it is mainly found now. Alipasso 2018 has a characterful bouquet with dried figs, dates, savoury smoke and pipe tobacco. On the palate, it is smooth with Christmas cake, mixed dried fruits and raspberry flavours. This is a rich full-bodied wine, and I would suggest that anyone who likes Amarone wines should enjoy this style. Grapes were left to over-ripen until late September then picked by hand with some maturation in barrel.
