Special concept red dry wine produced from grapes dried for an extra long period with the fermentation in the patented tank Fermentino Ca’Botta® for an extra potent body.
This wine was created as the proof, that a very strong wine can be well balanced, where alcohol does not distract from the enjoyment of the taste, and only warms up at the aftertaste.
Il Priore Rosso Veronese IGT demonstrates the advantage of Fermentino Ca'Botta®.
Intense and strong structure, but at the same time elegantly soft and refined. This wine was created as a proof, that you can balance a wine that has a high alcohol content with a very potent body. The high alcohol content of the wine does not distract from the elegant and rich taste.
Its taste is round and intense with a high presence of extracts and polyphenols. The color is ruby red with garnet accents.
The olfactory note is harmoniously structured. An interaction on the palate of ripe red fruit, cherries, red wild berries, in the finish with tobacco and vanilla.
IL PRIORE Rosso Veronese IGT is ready to drink immediately after opening, but for the best enjoyment it requires at least 60 minutes of decantation.
