About the Wine
This red wine is made by Passori in Veneto. Adds spice and juicy fruit to full-flavoured beef, lamb or game dishes. Formed from primarily Merlot grapes, this wine is vegetarian and vegan friendly. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark. Supplied by 10 International.
Merlot produces medium bodied, fleshy, juicy wines with round tannins. Often seen as a single varietal, or in a blend with Cabernet Sauvignon to take the hard edges off. Its grown all over the world and commercially one of the most important red grapes in the on-trade.
Corvina is an Italian wine grape that is sometimes also referred to as Corvina Veronese or Cruina. Grown almost entirely within the Veneto region of northeast Italy, with some in Argentina.
