Veneto, Italy, 2017
A rich, smooth red wine, showing plum and dried fruit notes, produced from late-harvested Merlot, about 60%, and Corvina grapes. When the grapes are ripe, the bunches are partially cut from the vines, hanging in the warm autumn air the grapes dry, concentrating the juice within and giving rise to the finished wine's fruit character. Added notes of spice and vanilla come from a brief period of oak ageing.
