Passori Rosso Veneto makes a welcome return to the Waud Wines list – this time in the guise of the 2020 vintage.
This wine has an intense deep ruby red with purple highlights. Enjoy the 60% Merlot and 40% Corvina blend, that is very typical of the vineyards of Veneto.
Flavours of ripe fruits, such as plums and raisins with pleasant notes of spices and vanilla. Rich and bold with very ripe, red fruit flavours. A solid structure with a beautiful balance between soft tannins and lifted acidity. Late maturation gives the characteristic notes of ripe fruits with added notes of spice and vanilla from short oak ageing.
In a mark of respect to the Amarone wines of Valpolicella, the vines are cut but the grapes are left to dry naturally on the vine, a method known as Appassimento. (Passori is also an anagram of Ripasso – and this name was created by a great friend of ours in the wine industry!)
This is a super easy drinking dry red wine, that is a real crowd pleasing red wine. If you are looking for a house red wine, then this is certainly one to consider – and is unbelievable value at £12.50 per bottle.
