Natalie's Score: 92/100

A full-bodied red wine blend featuring aromas of espresso, mocha, dried herbs and some wild tart blackberries. Robust, smooth, rich and deep. Cries out for a hearty meat dish. This wine is part of the Super Venetian trend toward very concentrated wines from the Veneto region of Italy, much like Tuscany has Super Tuscans or Turbo Tuscans. The wine is made from semi-dried grapes: Refosco, Carmenère (both of which aren't permitted under DOC regulations therefore this wine is designated IGT) and local grapes. Think Amarone but with a Venetian flair.

Food pairings: rich meat-based or baked pasta dishes, blackened leg of lamb, strong cheese, mushroom risotto with plenty of Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Cool Creamy Cheese Wine

A Super-Venetian red wine that's ideal for grilled meats. Lots of black cherry and savoury goodness. Uses the dried grape process for more richness. - Community Wine Reviews
