IL Sole di Corteforte 2008 - Bianco Passito - Corteforte

Regular price £18.50

Grapes: Garganega (40/50%), Riesling, Moscato, Chardonnay e Tocai.

Sight: Bright yellow gold, as a result of the extreme ripeness of the grapes.

Nose: Clean and very complex, aromatic, with scents of vanilla and honey-nut, candy, honey, white chocolate and cinnamon.

Palate: Full-bodied but delicate, complex and balanced.

General Information: It is a Valpolicella tradition to include a tiny percentage (less than 1%) of white grapes in the red grape dominated vineyards of the region. The outstanding aromatic qualities of these grapes allow the small production of a very special wine: "The sun of Corteforte".

Food Match: Perfect complement to the Pandoro of Verona, Panettone and creamy dessert. This wine can also brilliantly accompany tangy cheeses such as Gorgonzola and Roquefort, either by themselves or with honey, fruit preserve or mustard. Excellent as after dinner drink, too.
