Riondo Pianello Rosso Veneto 2008
Gian Carlo Pianello created this wonderful blend of Corvina and other grapes from the Verona area. Rich spicy black fruit aromas soar from the glass of this Ripasso look alike. On the palate it displays a sweet raisin-like character with ample amounts of blackberry and chocolate flavors on its long lush finish.

The 2008 is a superb vintage with deep rich fruit and thick skins. The later harvest lead to an extra richness in the wine. Value to price is over the top!
