Maeli Rosso 2017

Veneto, ItalyMaeli is owned by the 21st generation of Bisol brothers, Gianluca and Desiderio, and is nestled in the Euganean Hills’ volcanic, chalky slopes. The organic winery is directed by winemaker Elisa Dilavanzo. This blend of Merlot, Carmenere, and Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the volcanic and chalky hills of Veneto's Colli Euganei. After a native ferment, 30% of the wine was aged in neutral oak barrels, with the remainder in stainless and cement tanks. Deeply coloured, this youthful, energetic, and rich Italian red is full of fragrant dark mulberry, violet, fresh basil, and dark chocolate spicing on a deep palate. Tannins are ample and grippy, with a dusty grip to the sides. This powerful red is best served with equally rich meat pastas or braises.Tasted: 18 September 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 25.95 consignment Producer: MaeliDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
