Description

Merlot: 80%. Refosco: 20%. The Merlot and Refosco grapes are hand-harvested on two occasions, 50% are picked in September, at optimal ripeness, and the remaining 50% are picked in October, allowing time for increased maturation and concentration. After harvest, the grapes are crushed and left in contact with the skins through fermentation and maceration of around 10-15 days. The September batch remains in stainless steel tank until the October batch has been vinified, at which point they are blended. The finished wine is matured in large Slavonian oak barrels for 3 to 4 months before bottling. Vibrant purple color, rich luscious nose full of sweet ripe dark cherry, plum, vanilla and Christmas spice. Rich and velvety, soft tannins, with lots of juicy fruit.

The aim was to create wines of high quality, that are affordable and representative in style to those that have been made in Veneto for centuries. Using traditional varieties, whilst honouring long-established techniques, Gran Passione create beautiful expressions of these classic Venetian wines.
