Tasting Notes: Beautiful rich garnet colour - dense and dark.  The aromas are intense, complex and refined.  From bold mineral notes of the caranto terroir to spicy vanilla, dark tobacco and liquorice, all mingled with cherry and plum jam. Hints of chocolate, incense and mint.  The palate is warm, soft and luscious, with a delicate sweetness, despite the 80 grams of residual sugar, thanks to careful management of the withering process, so as to preserve the acidity/tannins necessary to avoid those disagreeable candied notes of "over-cooked" fruit characteristic of most passito wines.

“Rabbioso” is a raisin dessert wine made from 100% Raboso Piave grapes of different vintages (2006-2007 -2008). Harvest time for this native varietal grape varies from mid October to mid November depending on weather conditions. Grapes on the vine are carefully selected, hand harvested in cassettes of 4-5 Kg capacity and then placed in a suitable environment to wither on racks. Then, in the early months of the year following the harvest, the grapes are de-stalked, pressed and macerated for 15-20 days, with a yield in wine that varies from 20% to 30 %. After this process, the wine is aged in fine-grained, medium-toasted tonneaux of French oak, right up to the final blending of the different vintages, before being bottled. Our passito making method shares similarities with the famous “Soleras System” (such as Marsala, Jerez, Madeira, Porto) exemplified in the manner by which the wines are blended according to different vintage years and the length of time the wine is aged, so as to enrich and intensify the entire bouquet of olfactory and gustatory sensations. This Rabbioso was bottled in the month of November 2011.
