Gran Passione

2016 Red Wine Blend

Veneto Italy


This full-bodied of Merlot (60%) and Corvina (40%) is made in the appassimento method that is followed in making Amarone, resulting in a wine of intense red-purple color that exudes aromas and flavors of ripe red and black fruits resulting in a fine balance of soft tannins and acidity.  It is excellent with roasted and grilled meats, with game dishes and mature hard cheeses. 14% ABV  HWG

[Appassimento refers to a northern Italian process of wine making that involves the outdoor drying of harvested grapes on bamboo mats before pressing, a process that shrivels the grapes and concentrates the sugars and flavors in the resulting wine.]
