When you’re looking for a wine of richness and complexity with oodles of Old World charm that doesn’t break the bank—make this your go-to. It’s an Appassimento style wine, which means it’s made from grapes that have been dried before pressing. The result is a bolder, more concentrated style akin to Amarone. Negrar’s Appassimento cascades with plush layers of black and red berry fruit threaded with espresso, dried plum, black cherry and tobacco. Just a delight, great value for the price, and certainly worthy of any wine emergency.
