The label of this wine underlines the origin of Lake Garda in the Würm ice age with its adjacent morainic hills.
These hills form an ideal pedoclimatic environment to cultivate the queen of the Veronese grapes: the Corvina grape. Nino Zeni, eclectic oenologist and father of Fausto, Elena and Federica, starts planting Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the early 90s in some vineyards nearby the lake. An idea came up in his mind to create a new wine as a modern expression of our region, a harmonious blend where the local character and the elegance of the Corvina grape are blended with the international character and the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to give a unique and balanced wine.
The meticulously hand-selected grapes undergo a short raisinig in a tailored part of the winery in Bardolino. With a controlled fermentation on the skins, a wine with an interesting alcohol content of 14% is obtained.
With its intense ruby red colour, fragrances of ripe fruit and spices, a full-bodied, soft and long lasting taste this wine is a perfect match for traditional dishes like pasta with different sauces or grilled meat.
