Tried this Mon w/ my SantaFe group:
1. CasaVinironia Appassimento EdizioneOro VinoRosso (Vino Proveniente da Uve Passite; 14.5%; Corvina; off-dry)
Fossalta di Piave/Veneto 2012: Very dark color; very ripe/grapey/licorice/boysenberry slight alcoholic bit
coffee/meaty/earthy rather exoric nose; rather soft some tannic slightly off-dry very grapey/floral/boysenberry
slight herbal/dried basil/rose petal some overripe/grapey rather complex flavor; very long slight off-dry
very grapey/boysenberry/floral/RCCola/spicy bit overripe/alcoholic finish w/ light hard/bitey tannins; a pretty
exotic red a bit like an Amarone, a bit like some of the LatePick Zins in the '70's; quite an interesting red.
A wee BP:
1. This was a wine I stumbled upon at Roberto's WineExpo/SantaMonica a month ago. I was expecting something along the lines of a reccioto, but it was more akin to an Amarone..and a very good one at that.
