Fans of the steeped Valpolicella wines – Amarone, Recioto and Ripasso – will love this, especially as it does what an Amarone does at barely half the price.

The Rosso IGT Puglia Vino Passito Ca’Vittoria is a 60% Negroamaro, 25% Merlot, 15% Primitivo blend of grapes grown and harvested in the Salento area, with picking occurring as late as October. This gives a high level of sugar and high alcohol, required for the passito method: ripen grapes mature on the vine for about 15 days, naturally drying out.

During this period 50% of their weight and moisture is lost. This gives the resulting wine its characteristic notes of ripe fruits, such as plums and raisins. After a rigorous hand harvest, the grapes are pressed and the fermentation starts; the skins are left in the must for a long period to extract flavours and the characteristic ruby red colour. Subsequently the wine is left in oak for about 3 or 4 months; this aging gives pleasant notes of spice and vanilla.

This is a truly wonderful wine at an exceptional price.
