Neroperso pays homage to a century old winemaking method of “appassimento” that was widely practiced throughout Mediterranean countries and little has changed over time.
Harvested late to achieve maximum flavours and a high abv, the best grapes – mainly Corvina – undergo a drying process for 60 days (this process is called “appassimento”) until each grape is dried out concentrating its aromas and taste of ripe fruit. 20-25% of these grapes and used in the blend which undergoes a second fermentaion in January (Amarone will tend to have this process at the end of Feburary – March). Neropresso is finished with a short time in oak.
Gold Medal – Mundus Vini Summer Tasting 2023
Deep garnetred with an intense and harmonious bouquet of sweet, ripe damson and blackcurrant fruit backed by vanilla. Full-bodied, round and silky delivering elegance with a structured mid-palate; a smooth, long, lushious and sweet finish includes a little spice.
Appassimento is a food friendly wine; excellent with earthy first courses, as well as red meat or a juicy pulled pork
About the Producer
Enoitalia derives from ‘e eni Italia’ – “And us, Italy”.
The project started in 1986 and, under the management of Giorgio Pizzolo and his three brothers Giuliano, Augusto and Floriano, for the past 30 years has had a clear objective: to be global ambassadors for Italian wine.
Valuing and promoting the uniqueness of each Italian varietal and its region, 80% of its production is exported to over 80 countries on 5 continents.
The growth of Enoitalia is supported through this international development, by its unique business model and by continuous investments in production capacity and distribution network.
Starting long before it became fashionable, they have a long track record in sustainability – their latest project is to significantly reduce their energy requirements. They are part of VIVA, a project of the government ministry for the ecological transition of Italian viticulture.
They strongly believe in high-certified quality standards and follow the stringent protocols of evaluation of many global certification standards.
