PRÀGAL ROSSO VERONA
A fruity, spicy blend of Corvina, Merlot, and Syrah giving full expression of our region, intriguing in its easy elegance and full-bodied structure. Derived from low-yield vines, the wine is vinified with both fresh and partially dried grapes, and, after a lengthy maceration and fermentation period, refined in large oak barrels for six months in our historic cellars at Arbizzano di Negrar.
Deep ruby color lightly blended with garnet red and reflections of violet. Engaging bouquet with alternating hints of red fruit preserves, dried roses and black cherry with subtler tones of dark spice, tobacco and black pepper. Enticing, warm and round, bright acidity with soft, beguiling tannins balanced with great structure and persistence.
Corvina 60% | Merlot 20% | Syrah 20%
