Qualification: Rosso Veneto made from dried grapes IGT
Grapes: Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella 90%, Molinara and Merlot
Size: 75 cl
Production: In tanks of max. 60 hl, where automatic pumping, or delestage, can be carried out, with maximum extraction and minimum loss of quality. Maceration for about 25 days at room temperature. After pumping over, the wine is placed in wood, partly in large barrels, with 30% put into French oak medium-toasted barriques, with only a few new ones.
Ageing: the wine is refined for at least 6 months in the bottle.
Service temperature: drink at room temperature. It is at its best served in large crystal wine glasses.
It is a deep red wine with a highly complex bouquet that recalls cooked ripe fruit, preserved in alcohol, dominated by plums, black cherries, raspberries, spices (especially pepper and ginger) and, due to ageing in small wooden barrels, slight notes of cocoa, liquorice and aniseed. On the palate, notes of tangy jams and spices predominate. Its natural sweet tannins are perfectly balanced with its body, giving it interesting roundness. It is very harmonious and well-structured.
Main courses such as strongly flavoured roasted meat and any type of game. Perfect with seasoned cheeses or sipped in company outside of meal times.
