Passion is a powerful feeling, a compelling emotion. "Gran Passione" is exactly this, the expression and devotion to our work that honors the tradition of our land.
The Gran Passione Rosso is crafted in the tradition of “Apassimento” (to dry and shrivel), the same style as Amarone wines of the region. This technique has its roots in an ancient past dating back to the Roman era. Over the centuries, this technique of “drying” the grapes before crushing has been honed, resulting in this unique expression of northern Italy.
Piedmont is often called the “Burgundy of Italy” due to its reputation for many small family wineries and a focus on quality. The Gran Passione Piedmont collection (Barbera d’Asti DOCG & Gavi DOCG) represents the diversity and quality of this northwestern pocket of Italy, set at the foot of the Alps.
Our Salice Salentino DOCG Riserva wine is crafted from Negroamaro grape, a red wine grape variety native to southern Italy. It is grown almost exclusively in Puglia and particularly in Salento, the peninsula referred to as the “heel” of Italy. The grape can produce wines of very deep color and intensity that are some of the best reds of Puglia.
Falanghina is a very characterful ancient white grape which may have provided a basis for the classical falernian and is still grown on the south west of Italy near Naples. It surrounds the Mediterranean basin with abundant sunshine and hillside sites for vineyards, and volcanic soil quite suitable for vine growing.
