gran passione rosso veneto italyGran Passione Rosso – Veneto – Italy

Now comes Gran Passione Rosso. Not an Amarone. Not a Valpolicella, a simple IGT wine as opposed to being classified DOCG or DOC. The blend of 60% Merlot, 40% Corvina is made by the time-honored tradition of drying grapes before fermentation, the appassimento technique, the same way Amarone is produced.  This wine is full-bodied, displaying rich red & black fruits on a good finish. Ideal for roasted and grilled meats, other heartier fare and mature hard cheeses. I did not need food to enjoy my glass of Gran Passione Rosso. Guaranteed pleasure!
