WTN: Fabio Contato 2003 - Garda Doc Classico Rosso

by Peter May » Sat Jul 08, 2006 1:22 pm

Fabio Contato 2003
Garda Doc Classico Rosso
Azienda Agricola Provenza
14%
From a winery about 2 kilometres from the restaurant, a blend of
Gropello
Marzemino
Barbera
Sangiovese

Tasted a bit alcoholic at first so I asked for an ice bucket and cooled it for 15 minutes.
Condensation on a red wine bottle looks a bit strange but the wines fruit was now to the front with a depth of cherry and strawberry with a Peppery spicyness.
Long finish showing mint and soft sweet leather.

A delighful wine, the last red of our holiday.

€27 in a restaurant in Sirmione, Italy

Gropello and Marzemio? New ones to me. Sounds like an interesting wine, though. "Pepperiness" always gets my attention. Have a comfortable trip home.
