Grape: 60% Merlot, 40% Corvina. Region: Italy> Veneto. Notes: Apassimento (drying of the grapes before crushing).
Description: Rosso is crafted in the tradition of “Apassimento” (to dry and shrivel), the same style as Amarone wines of the region. This technique has its roots in an ancient past dating back to the Roman era. Over the centuries, this technique of “drying” the grapes before crushing has been honed, resulting in this unique expression of northern Italy. Gran Passione has an in- tense purple color, tending towards amber with ageing. It is full-bodied with a solid structure due to the elevated alcohol and fine balance be- tween soft tannins and acidity from rich red and black fruits.
Food pairings: Cheese, game meat, lamb, osso buco, short ribs, venison, etc.
