For centuries the Veneto region of Italy, has been leading the way with modern winemaking. Gran Passione is a project which began, in homage to some of the great wines of this region.
The Veneto is the only wine area in the world which seriously utilises dried grapes in their wine production.
Gran Passione Rosso is a combination of the international Merlot grape and local variety Corvina. The fruit is harvested on two occasions, half at optimal ripeness, nd the other half a month later when the grapes have dried out a bit, which decreases the acidity and the water content, and concentrates the sugars. This results in a glossy, velvety wine which will kiss thy lips, as they once said in a famous story based in this area.
It's full of rich, luscious, ripe dark cherries, plums, vanilla and spice.
A wonderful food wine, perfect with ragu, roasted or grilled meats or mature hard cheeses.
