Apulese means Apulia region and Appassimento technique combined together, a successful marriage that has lasted over 2500 years. In this spectacular region, surrounded by the sea, there are unique pedoclimatic conditions that ensure a perfect drying process of the grapes on the vines. The process is called “appassimento” and, since it is linked to the cycle of the seasons, is a very delicate phase. The grapes are left to dry (“appassire”) under the sun for a long period of time, leading to a natural dehydration of the berries and concentration of the sugar, then they are finally harvested to give birth to extraordinary wines with an incredible smooth body and a complex structure.

VINIFICATION: The grapes are subjected to a drying process on the plant: they are left to over-ripen (over-ripening) on the vine, and therefore harvest is delayed 10 to 30 days depending on the production area.
