Medium ruby; intensely aromatic nose with strawberry, dried cherry, currants and hints of leather, autumn leaves and asian spice; dry, medium-bodied with classic ripasso flavours, a ripe, round palate and some wood tannins bringing complexity to the long and satisfying finish.
Campolieti means “happy fields” and refers to the vineyards from which the grapes are harvested. The wine is a traditional blend of the Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grape varietals that has had a second fermentation on the pressings of the Amarone grapes (a process called “ripasso”).
Best with roast or stewed red meat. Also with pasta, risotto, calamari, bolognese with mushroom
