Bertani Cattulo Rosso'01 IGT, Veneto, Italy

Technical Data:Made from a 50/50 blend of Corvina and Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are aged for twelve months in French oak barrels, which have been medium roasted, whereas the Corvina grapes spend the same amount of time in barrels of Slavonia oak. The two wines are combined several months before being bottled, where they remain for about six months.

Description:Intense ruby-red color with slightly violet touch. The nose express spicy woodsy notes with strong fruity qualities, such as sweet blackberries and blueberries. A full-bodied taste is balanced with the fruity flavors for a dense, concentrated wine.

Food Pairings & Service:Serve with red meats and full-flavoured cheeses. Ready to drink now but could also easily lay down for a while.


Suggested Retail Price:$15.99
