Il Casone Merlot Raboso Veneto IGP 2017, Veneto

Producer Note

We are very proud of our small, but stylish Il Casone range. We seek no shortcuts in fashioning wines which are fresh, interesting and bursting with character.

Vintage

2017 saw a cold winter with abundant rainfall. In the spring there were pockets of frost which delayed budburst in some vineyards. Warm, sunny weather over the summer period helped to restore the normal growth of the vines and the grapes were harvested in a healthy condition with good varietal characteristics.

Vineyard

The vines are grown in chalky and volcanic soils.

Winemaking

The grapes were destemmed to reduce the levels of tannins in the resulting wine, pressed and macerated to extract aromatics, flavour and fine tannins. Each grape variety was fermented separately with selected yeasts in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The cuvées were then blended and kept in tank to retain the purity of fruit and freshness, until bottled.

Tasting Note

A vibrant and easy-drinking red wine with juicy berried fruit flavours and a crisp, moreish finish.

Serving Suggestion

This versatile, fruity red is a great by-the-glass wine, which also accompanies red meats, pasta dishes and pizza.

Merlot 70%, Raboso 30%
