CORASCO ROSSO TREVENEZIE IGT

This wine is made from grapes selected form the Venetian territories: Corvina variety grown on the Moraine hills in the heart of Valpo-licella, Raboso variety grown in Oderzo (Treviso), and Refosco variety grown in Aquileia. This wine is made in a traditional Veronese manner: raisin-drying of the grapes. The effect is partial dehydration: the grapes, placed in crates for about one month, lose about 8-10 % of their weight. This water loss naturally enriches the sugar contents of the grapes, their dry extract, and the colour of the wine. This wine has well structured tannins that are balanced with the alcohol giving it its roundness. The lively acidity gives the wine freshness and brings out the fruity aromas.

Label

 

The label for the Tedeschi Corasco includes a vortex. Beyond representing the three types of grape used in its production: Corvina, Raboso and Refosco, it visually expresses the movement of the grapes that mix together in a homogeneous manner in order to bring to life an original, round wine with good structure.
