Deep red and violet in colour, this looks as big as it tastes. A powerful wine on the nose and palate with flavours of plums, blackberries and cherry syrup with a spicy overtone too. It’s a dry wine with firm, rich tannins and it needs to be savoured slowly to appreciate the multi-faceted nature of this wine. A perfect partner to game and other rich, full-flavoured dishes.

Made from 70% Corvina and 30% Rondinella which are harvested and left in small wooden crates for up to six months to concentrate the sugars and aromatics. The grapes are then pressed and fermented...

Fasoli Gino

Fasoli Gino turned to organic viticulture in 1980 and since 1984 all of their land has been farmed organically. The nature of the land (partly clay and partly a mix of stones and sand), and the favourable microclimate (the wide and sunny valley, protected from the north by the Lessini mountains) make the area particularly suitable for vine growing. Currently the estate is cultivating 14 hectares of vineyards divided into seven parts: Casétta, Cassòla, Creàri, Pessétta, Perantònie, Orgno and Sànde. The type of land varies from one vineyard to the other, which has helped determine which varietals should be planted. In the clay soil there are 30–40 year old garganega vines, traditionally used for Soave wine. Where the soil is stony and sandy, some clones of chardonnay, merlot and pinot noir have been planted. The meticulous viticultural practices include: grass grown under the vines; manuring with bovine dung; balanced pruning to guarantee a low yield; parasite control using natural products and predators, and hand picking done at different times to select grapes at their optimum ripening point. The vinification is carried out with the use of modern technology whilst respecting the criteria of organic production.

Customer Reviews

This one's a bit of a bigun! Review by Liepo
With that much alcohol I'd recommend chilling it slightly before you pour it, that way you can really see it open up in the glass. Loads of rich dark fruit but equally soft and smooth at the same time. (Posted on 29/08/2014)
