2012 Venissa Rosso

500ML BOTTLE DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR

$450.00

An exceptional red wine that conveys the heart of Native Venice. This is an intense red wine that fully reflects the passion of this producer. Enduring floods and embracing its salty terroir’s minerality and intense notes, it appeals to experienced red wine connoisseurs but intrigues beginners alike.

It is rich and fragrant, with notes of berries, wood, liquorice, and dark chocolate that bursts in the mouth and make us understand how this international grape variety has found its perfect habitat in this particular area. 

The precious copper sheet label is handmade by artisans in Venice, and it elevates the prestige of this wine, bringing a timeless, elegant look to your cellar.

Another fantastic wine from this beautiful winery located on the island of Mazzorbo in Venice. A complex, deep wine truly capable of capturing the most varied palates thanks to its surprising harmony and outstanding balance between aging, fruit and spice flavours. It’s such a rare opportunity to find this wine in Australia, and you cannot miss it.

Tasting

The wine has an intense ruby red colour with violet shades. It offers olfactory notes of flowers from the sandbar with fruity sensations of dark berries – such as mulberry and blueberry – and more complex expressions of tobacco and salty notes. The tactile postnasal feel is balsamic and savoury. There are more hints of black fruit on the palate, associated with licorice and chocolate notes. The finale is smooth with long persistence.

Food pairing

It’s a wonderful wine with roasted meats, cheeses or by itself as a meditation wine.
