Vivaldi Passatempo Rosso Veneto IGT Wine Region region_veneto

  • Description

    A baby Amarone from the Veneto.

    Passatempo is made from Valpolicella's indigenous red grape varieties: Corvina, Rondinella, and Corvinone. After harvest some of the grapes are partially dried in a process called appassimento, traditionally used in Amarone and Valpolicella Rippasso to concentrate flavors and depth.

    A deep garnet colored red wine with cherry, plum, and raisin aromas. On the palate this balanced red has medium tannins and rich dark cherry and boysenberry notes leading into a long-baked fruit finish. Ideal for strong cheeses, roast lamb, braised short ribs, risotto, and pasta dishes. (from the vintner)
