The vibrancy of the Barbera melds beautifully with the smoothness of the Marzemino, creating a wine with a vivacious personality bursting with just-picked fruit, a versatile pleasure inviting another glass.
Made with Marzemino and Barbera grapes grown on the south shore of Lake Garda, this red wine takes its name from a single-vineyard called La Venga: its fresher, clay soils lend acidity, round mouthfeel and texture to this wine with a beautiful, vibrant personality.
A single-vineyard called La Venga, located in the small village of Montonale, with excellent sunlight exposure and good ventilation.
The bunches are manually selected by hand harvesting, then they are destemmed and crushed. Fermentation occurs for about 10 days at controlled temperature. After the racking, the wine is aged for about 8 months in stainless steel tanks and for at least 6 months in the bottle.
A ruby red colour with purple hues, the nose offers crisp red fruit aromas, dominated by red cherry and plum, with elegant hints of dried rose that reveal an even more alluring character. The palate is delightfully supple, a touch of lively acidity and round mouthfeel provide elegant support and balance, with the crispy fruit that reveals a long, refreshing finish. The fine tannic texture makes the sip appealing and invites a second taste.
It is perfect with pasta with meat sauce, Italian lasagna, sliced beef, fine cold cuts and semi-firm cheeses. Try it with “lumache alla bresciana”, the traditional snail recipe of Brescia!
