Description

Sweet, ripe, smooth.
This new Venetian red is a blend of Merlot and the local Corvina grape. It has an appassimento quality to it that is the result of late harvesting - leaving the grapes to hang on the vine longer. This can be an appealing or distracting character. In this case the fruit is dried - dried cherries and prune, spiced chocolate, rich earth, toasted spices, saddle leather and espresso. The palate is sweet from the raisined fruit and offers the same flavours as the nose. A bit hollow mid-palate but overall smooth and ripe.
