Gran Passione Rosso 2015

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

This delightful discovery hails from the Veneto region in northern Italy which was made famous by the great Amarone wine and classic Valpolicella. We thought that the Gran Passione tasted like a ‘baby’ Ripasso which is the red wine made by passing the Valpolicella juice over the lees of the Amarone, and in fact a portion of the grapes for Gran Passione were dried in the sun before fermentation (like the Amarone), an ancient process that gives the wine more body and richness. This blend of Corvina and Merlot has dark red fruits, dark chocolate, licorice, crème de cassis and Asian spices on the nose and mouth. A better-than-good pasta and pizza wine, this will also pair wonderfully with veal and beef roasts, fine aged Italian cheeses and salumi and or a Florentine-inspired steak...
