Paolo Cottini - Elio - Rosso Veronese 2017

Unlike Paolo’s more traditional offerings, his Elio red is composed of Merlot and Corvina and is labelled as IGT Rosso Veronese. Before vinification Paolo dries out the grapes to concentrate the sugars and flavours, a typical technique which has been used for generations to make Valpolicella wines. The powerful flavour profile is sure to be a winner with lovers of big reds thanks to the intense cassis, black cherry and jammy plum notes. The first sip reveals a generous full body, bold dark berry flavours and firm tannins which will help this wine age gracefully over the next five years or so.

Food Pairing: hearty courses, red meat and game, as well as with aged cheeses.
