4.3 Vivino Stars (140+ Reviews)
Big, bold, and bountiful with ripe berry action, this 2020 release gets similar grape-drying treatment as Italy’s famous Amarone reds — and has earned a whopping 98 points from legendary Italian wine critic Luca Maroni! And at $13.99/bottle? That’s insane. Grab it while you can.
For this luscious red, Bastioni della Rocca dries their Negroamaro and Primitivo grapes naturally, on the vine, for up to 25 days. This traditional, time-honored “Appassimento” process has been used for centuries, historically from Italy’s Veneto region in the production of its famous Amarone reds. Here, the technique is applied to rich, ripe grapes in Puglia instead, concentrating the fruit to almost unbelievable levels, and resulting in a wine that’s unctuous, bold, and delicious!
