- In the Veneto region, the family of Count Giordano Emo Capitolista goes back to the 13th Century. On the same latitude as Bordeaux in France, he has been producing world-class wines based on Bordeaux varietals planted in the 19th C.
- This is his top-of-the-line “signature wine”, a field blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet and 7% Raboso, all from a single hillside vineyard. It is aged in French oak and given extra bottle age in the cellar.
- Deep ruby red in color, it has aromas of blackberries and plums with hints of Asian spices. Full-bodied and complex, it has developed a long smooth finish.
- Superb with roast lamb and other red meats. Locally, it is favored with rich stews served over polenta.
