$45.00 including GST

Description

With its deep ruby red colour, aromas of ripe fruit and spices, and full-bodied, smooth, and long-lasting taste, this wine pairs well with classic foods such as pasta with various sauces or grilled meat.

This wine’s label emphasizes Lake Garda’s origins in the Würm ice era, as well as the nearby morainic hills. These hills provide a great pedoclimatic condition for growing the Corvina grape, Veronese’s queen grape. Nino Zeni, an eclectic oenologist and the father of Fausto, Elena, and Federica, began planting Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in vines near the lake in the early 1990s. He had the idea to create a new wine that would be a modern expression of our region, a harmonious blend of the local character and elegance of the Corvina grape with the international character and structure of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to produce a unique and balanced wine.

The precisely hand-selected grapes are aged for a brief period of time in a customized area of the winery in Bardolino. A controlled fermentation on the skins produces a wine with an intriguing alcohol concentration of 14%.
