Wine Chat May 1st: Appassimento Style Wines

May 1st, 2013: Appassimento style wines – Who’s using the process? Why is it popular? Pros & Cons. Not sure what that is? The appassimento process refers to a partial drying of the grape in order to concentrate the flavour and sugars, etc. (what one of my profs would call the “dry extract”). Here’s some background articles:

Passito, Appassimento, & Recioto.

Recent CCOVI presentation on this style of wine.

John Szabo on Appassimento wines. And David Lawrason chirps in too.

Grape Growers article.

Rick VanSickle on the style.
