Tasting Notes

This is a delicious blend offering the soft, blackberry voluptuousness of the Merlot in harmony with the characteristic cherry blossom and ripe cherry pie character of Corvina. It is a fresh and well-balanced wine.

Producer details

The Ponte Pietra is the old stone bridge across the Adige river in Verona which dates back to Roman times. Wines have been grown here a lot longer than that!

In the vineyard

The Merlot is grown on the warm, sheltered plains, on clay soils to bring out the full fruit potantial. The Corvina is grown in the foothills on tufaceous basalt soils. All of the vineyards have excellent exposure, which helps to ensure complete ripeness.

In the winery

The grapes were hand harvested, 25% of the juice was drained from the tank in order to increase the ratio of skins to juice, which in turn resulted in a wine with greater colour and flavour. The wine was pumped over the cap every hour in the early stages to increase extraction further. It was left in contact with the skins for four to five days and fermentation took place at temperatures up to 30°C. After pressing, the wine was aged in stainless steel tanks until bottling.
