COR DI VIN 95
Grape: CORVINA & MARSELAN
Main characteristics: RICH & SEDUCTIVE
You know Amarone, right? where they grown Corvina, and dry the grapes in an attic to intensify, well, everything, to make a statement wine of power, sweetness and booze? Well, these guys make that too. But for this cracker, they leave the grapes to dry a little on the vine, and blend with just 5% Marselan to give a teeny herbaceous lift, just when you may think the wine is heading to sweetness. It reminds me of a really great Ripasso, but with just a little something extra. Very, very good, and a real favourite.
