Natalie's Score: 88/100

Juicy acidity with tanned leather aromas on the nose and palate of this rustic Italian red wine. Peppery red berry fruit and a supple smooth texture. Medium to almost full-bodied. A lovely, balanced example of the Appassimento style that concentrates flavours but doesn't make the wine heavy. Very savoury. This robust Italian red wine takes its name -- Arele -- from the wooden trays that were traditionally used to dry the grapes, or a portion of them, to make Appassimento wine. The 2014 vintage has intense dark red fruit and polished tannins. Pair with grilled meats.

Food pairings: cheese pizza, veal, beef, tagliatelle alla Bolognese (pasta), chicken herb-rubbed roast.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Rustic! Dried sage and berry notes are prominent. The palate is dry with chalky/dusty tannic mouthfeel, high acid, and concentrated cherry and red plum flavours. The finish is long and spicy with a dominate dried sage/oregano note. Definitely, pair with pasta primavera and meatballs. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
From a world renown producer, Tommasi, Arele Parziale Appassimento (2015) is a red wine blend of 70% Corvina with 10% each of Rondinella, Oseleta and Merlot. Because of the wine style the ripe red fruit with a spicy peppery finish is smooth and liquid cherry on the palate. "Arele" is for the wooden trays that were traditionally used to dry the grapes in making Appassimento-style wine. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
