Venegazzù “Della Casa”

This wine holds a special place in the history of the red wines of Montello and also of Italy. It was one of the first examples of Cabernet and Merlot blends made in Italy after WWII. At that time, Count Loredan had begun to think about creating a great red wine aged in large barrels based on Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. The success of his Reserve wine subsequently led the Montello DOC to recognize this blend and authorize it under the nmae the name Venegazzù, which responds precisely to the blend of the Venegazzù Della Casa. The Cabernet Sauvignon is always predominant and combined with a good part of Merlot, a small touch of Cabernet Franc and Malbec add depth and flavor creating a wine of extraordinary harmony.

Vinyard Notes:
Vineyard: North of Venice in the Treviso hills, the classic Bordeaux varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (25%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Malbec (5%), have been planted since the 1950s to fashion Bordeaux-style red wines of unusual complexity and value.

Winemaking Notes:
Vinification:   Aged eighteen months in large neutral oak barrels, the wine’s pure, delicious core of black fruits takes center stage while its latent structure ensures several years of positive evolution in your cellar. This is an elegant and distinctive interpretation of a classic Left Bank Bordeaux.
