The appassimento style started life at Virgin as something niche but, after a few years of huge success, it's become a mainstay in our Italian portfolio. These wines may be more often associated with Northern Italy (e.g. Amarone) however our Wine Buyer, Alex, came across this delicious gem from Puglia. Rich, robust, bursting at the seams with fruit and spice, it ticks all the boxes of a red that's punching well above its weight. We're old pros now at sourcing this style, if we do say so ourselves!
