Corvinone 40%, Corvina 30% and Cabernet Sauvignon 30%
We call this a baby Amarone because it is just a simple de-classified version of the famous Italian wine. The grapes and the processes used are similar and the resulting wine is as delicious and at a fraction of the price of an Amarone! The critical factor is the incorporation of Appassimento grapes - a technique that dates back to Roman times. Best bunches of grapes with the appropriate structure to facilitate the drying process are selected and stored in the "fruttaio" a large, well ventilated room. The juice from these dried grapes is added to the blend to enhance the flavour and character of the finished wine.
Loads of black cherry, plums and cloves. There is a really smooth and velvety characteristic to the wine that comes from a portion of the wine being aged in oak barrels. The tannins are soft and the acid is light. This is a real crowd pleaser!
The Biscardo family were established traders in Verona, who became one of the first organisations to start wine production in the region in 1878. In the 1950's the business became one of the most significant producers in Veneto after making significant investment in the production process, and selling to the German, Swiss and UK markets.
