A delicious blend offering the soft, blackberry voluptuousness of the Merlot in harmony with the characteristic cherry blossom and ripe cherry pie character of Corvina. A fresh and well-balanced wine.
These elegantly presented wines are made by Matt Thomson at Cantina di Monteforte from fruit which is declassified from Soave Classico status and offer superb quality at this price. Verona
The grapes were hand harvested, de-stemmed, crushed and pumped to stainless steel tanks purpose-built for fermenting red wine. 25% of the juice was drained from the tank in order to increase the ratio of skins to juice, which in turn resulted in a wine with greater colour and flavour. The wine was pumped over the cap every hour in the early stages to increase extraction further. It was left in contact with the skins for 4-5 days and fermentation took place at temperatures up to 30°C. After pressing, the wine was aged in stainless steel tanks until bottling.
