Grape(s): Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella
Region: Veneto, Italy
An Italian gem hailing from the Veneto region. These grapes are dried out on straw 120 days before pressing, and spend 2 years in oak barriques, and one year in oak fourges. Prepare for bold dried fruit flavour, rigid tannins, and high alcohol content. At 16.5%, this bad boy does best with braised beef Italian style on cool fall evenings.
