Marco Polo Appassimento Passito, Domini Veneti, Rosso Veneto IGT, Italy, 2021
Grapes: 60% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 15% Rondinella, 10% others. Hand-picked. 20-25 year old vines.
Spiced aromas with notes of vanilla and cherry support a full-bodied and round palate with soft tannins followed by a long finish with spicy notes. Produced by the Cantina Valpolicella Negrar.
Appassimento is the process of natural partial dehydration of grapes to produce a greater concentration of colours, aromas and flavours in the wine. Since partially dried grapes also have a higher concentration of sugars, this system is often used to make sweet or very concentrated wines. "Marco Polo" combines both appassimento and traditionally produced grapes to make a soft, medium-dry wine.
Serve with meat dishes and aged cheeses.
