Rosso Fortissimo (Italy)
Cellar Craft Showcase
With Crushed Grape Skins
- A big, full-bodied wine with solid structure and bold fruit notes. Complex cassis, plum and cherry notes balance the bold tannins. Oak contributes toasty vanilla and greater depth in this intense wine. Fermenting on crushed grape skins enhances the bouquet and contributes soft velvety tannins for a round, juicy mouthfeel.
- Pairs nicely with beef, lamb, any Tuscan-style dishes with tomato sauces and stroganoff.
- Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese and other native Italian varieties
- Weeks: 8 | Oak: Medium | Body: Full | Sweetness: Dry
