Tenute Fiorebelli Cabaletta, Rosso delle Venezie

Tenute Fiorebelli Cabaletta, Rosso delle Venezie

A blend of 70% Corvina, 20% Rondinella and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, from low-yielding vineyards in the province of Verona. The vines are inter-planted and trained using the pergola Veronese and Guyot methods and the grapes are harvested by hand; half of the Corvina grapes are left on the vines for an extra five weeks, well into November, to concentrate the sugars and the flavours. After destemming, the grapes are not crushed, allowing them to remain intact, reducing damage to the skins and optimising colour extraction. About 30% of the blend is aged for 12 months in American and French barriques. The nose shows complex aromas, reminiscent of prune, cherry and redcurrant; the palate is supple with a long finish.
