This Verona Rosso is a blend of Amarone grapes Corvina (60%) and Rondinella (30%) with a splash of Merlot, picked by hand in the nearby Pastreno vineyards of the Benazzoli family, then fermented and aged in stainless steel for a full year prior to bottling.
Light to medium bodied and garnet towards brick red in colour, this is wonderfully perfumed, redolent of red cherry, blackberry and raspberry with beautiful floral notes of red roses and violets and savoury backnotes of balsamic, bark and juniper. Big in structure, with gripping tannins and quenching acidity, there’s still a real softness and charm, with all those juicy red berry characters and feminine floral notes coming through in waves, all backed up by a savoury earthiness with sprinkles of pepper, cedar and cigar box.
Serve with rich meaty dishes like rabbit or game, or with mature cheeses.
