Biscardo Neropasso Originale Rosso Veneto
This product is currently sold out.
Wow! This wine is like a mini Amarone at a third of the price! Just like an Amarone, the grapes used in Biscardo Neropasso Originale are air-dried first to concentrate the flavours and allow the sugar content to rise. The result, a powerful juggernaut of a wine that has a beautifully poised slight sweetness that defies the tiny price. The juice is intense ruby red turning to garnet with ageing. The bouquet is spicy with hints of cherry, black cherry and plum compote. This follows through into the taste but what will really make you think you are drinking an Amarone is the fine and velvety palate with persistent, soft tannins at the end. Oh this is good. You absolutely should buy some! And if you do, try pairing this with a hearty tomato based pasta or aged Italian cheeses.
Grapes: Corvinone 40%, Corvina 30%, Cabernet Sauvignon 30%
