Our Favorite Italian Red

Tucked in the northern corner of Italy, the Veneto DOC is the land of love. It’s home to dimly-lit cafes along Venitian canals, Romeo + Juliet’s story in Verona and birthplace of Cassanova – it is the land of grand passion. The Gran Passione wines reflect this passion and the centuries-old history of winemaking in the process.

The 2019 Gran Passione Rosso is crafted in the tradition of “Appasimento” which means to dry and shrivel, the same style as Amarone wines of the region. This technique has its roots in an ancient past dating back to the Roman era.  Over the centuries, this technique of “drying” the grapes before crushing has been honed, resulting in this unique expression of Northern Italy.

Gran Passione has an intense purple color.  It is full-bodied and rich with dark fruit flavors of blackberry and black cherry balanced by a solid structure due to the elevated alcohol, acidity and soft tannins.  It’s a great wine for roasted and grilled meats, stews and other rich dishes.  Also excellent with mature firm cheeses. 89 Points wine.com
