Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Crushed wild berries, cherries, a little kirsch and a savory and herbal element dominate the extremely inviting nose. Smooth as silk on the palate, this wine is mesmerizingly complex, with nuances of cherry, olives, spices and oak.  Full-bodied and voluptuous, the estate’s Primofiore is a blend of equal parts Corvina, Corvinone, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, which all finish ripening while being stored in wooden boxes. More than that, Primofiore, which means “first press,” gets the runoff juice of the first-run Amarone, adding depth and complexity. While 2011 was very hot and very dry throughout most of Italy, the Veneto saw an excellent harvest that, while smaller than normal, offered highly concentrated, perfectly ripe berries. The rich ’11 Primofiore allows enthusiasts a first taste of this banner vintage.
