From the 2009 European Winery of the Year (Wine Enthusiast magazine) comes this rather different red wine made from the native teroldego grape variety. Think of it as a cross between Shiraz and Zinfandel and you would be in the right ball park. Aromas of black berried fruits and ripe raspberries waft out of the glass with notes of dried fruits. The palate is full-bodied and lush with dark fruit and almost tar-like flavours, friendly tannins, bright acidity, and a dry, rich finish. It needs hearty meat dishes to compliment it.
Colour: Intense ruby red
Bouquet: Pleasant aroma of ripe fruit, prunes and blackcurrant
Flavour: Full body and pleasant tannins balance well with fruity and light barrique
Food pairings: Ideal with stews, roasted or grilled red meats, and aged cheeses
