Gran Passione Rosso 2018
A blend of Corvina and Merlot, this Italian red is produced in the appassimento style, just like Amarone that sells for over six times as much.
It is full-bodied and rich with dark fruit flavors of blackberry and black cherry balanced by a solid structure due to the elevated alcohol, acidity and soft tannins. It's a great wine for roasted and grilled meats, stews and other rich dishes. Also excellent with mature firm cheeses.
Wine SpectatorA stylish red, with an expressive range of black cherry coulis, herbed olive and baking spice notes, set in a round, medium-bodied frame. A crowd-pleaser. Merlot and Corvina. Drink now through 2022.
