Description

Pietro Zardini "Pietro Junior" 70/30 Corvina Cabernet 2018

Pietro Zardini "Pietro Junior" 70/30 Corvina Cabernet is warm and well-encompassing. Vivid ruby red colour with garnet tinges. Opens with a rich bouquet of blackberry, blackcurrant, vanilla and sweet spices. The aromas follow through to the full-bodied palate before closing in a long finish with silky tannins.

70% Corvina and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.  The fruit comes from Pietro Zardini's vineyards in the province of Verona. The vines grow in prevalently red and dark soils rich in debris, calcareous marl and basalt. 

Special selection and hand picking of the grapes into trays. Natural drying of the grapes for 3 months. Traditional skin contact for 4–5 weeks. The wine ages in clay pots, oak barrels and barriques for 2 years, subsequently in bottle.

 

Ageing potential: 8–10 years from vintage.
