An immense wine with a very distinctive and powerful fruit profile made from a blend of 40% Corvina, 40% Corvinone and 20% Rondinella. The grapes are hand picked and left to dry for 120 days which concentrates the flavours within the grapes. A maceration of 25 days, 30 months aging in French oak followed by a further 8 months aging in bottle results in an intense and perfumed wine with ripe red berry fruit, sweet vanilla notes, nutmeg, spice & chocolate. It's a heady experience to say the least!
Marchesi Fumanelli is a lovely, historic estate based in San Pietro in Cariano which can trace it's winemaking history back through 28 generations to 1470. They have the perfect blend of tradition mixed with a modern outlook which makes for serious wines that really stand out.
