Passo del Sud Luca Maroni 95, italian red, made in the Appassimento method of pre drying the grapes in the sun to concentrate flavour, alcohol and power.
This wine is the collaboration of two friends (Benedetto & mario) using local indigenous grapes with a little Merlot.
Made on a slightly larger scale than our boutique wines but still much smaller than mass produced wines. This is an excellent choice if you want a powerful wine at the right money.

Passo Del Sud Appassimento
A complex tapestry of Primitivo, Negroamaro & Nero Di Troia grapes.
Appassimento meaning to dry some of the grapes before wine making, to enrich and concentrate the flavour. This really is a taste of Puglia and not for the faint hearted either. It carries its alcohol well and is rich deep and broody yet smooth throughout – definitely a food wine and probably with a proper barbeque or Sunday roast.
