Aristocratico Appassimento comes from Salento in the Italian region of Apulia, located in southern Italy - an area rich in history and culture. The warm Mediterranean climate with many hours of sunshine along with the cooler sea breeze makes Salento a perfect wine region. For a long time, "passito" wines, wines on dried grapes, have been regarded as the noblest of wines. The wine maker Gianliugu Borsari has devoted all his life to refining this drying process. Only the finest grapes are left on the vines to dry, giving a tasty wine that fits tasteful meat dishes and hard, salty cheeses. Alcohol Content 14 %.
