Pietro Zardini Austero IGT Corvina Verona DOCG 2017
Pietro Zardini Austero IGT has an intense ruby red colour with garnet tinges. Elegant bouquet of dark fruits and sweet spices. The balanced body has velvety tannins and rich blackcurrant flavours that extend into hints of vanilla and clove spices.
100% Corvina. The fruit comes from Pietro Zardini's vineyards in the Valpolicella production zone. The vines grow in prevalently red and dark soils rich in debris, calcareous marl and basalt.
Special selection and hand picking of the grapes during the late harvest. Natural drying of the grapes for 1 month. Traditional maceration for 3–4 weeks. The wine ages in oak barrels and barriques for 1–2 years.
Ageing potential: 4–6 years from vintage.
