Characteristics

Ruby-coloured, intense, and suggestive. From its multifaceted body that is both serious yet suggestive, arises an intense aroma of berries and barely perceptible hints of vanilla. The balsamic echo in the bouquet anticipates its robust taste, consistent with the full-bodied nature of this artful melange. Balance, persistence and harmony come together to guarantee the irresistible aromatic depth that is waiting to be explored with Imperante Italian Red Wine.

Vinification

The secret lies in the right proportions: the maturation process, the intensity of its fruitiness, the timing of the harvest, the correct blending of the right combination of grapes. Then comes the wine pressing done according to the rhythm set by a long tradition, respected and industriously continued by ever-vigilant vintners. The resting time in the cellar must be neither cut too short nor drawn out too long, to prevent the process from leaving an excessive mark on the character of Imperante Italian Red Wine. A wine that playfully reveals itself a little at a time and on tasting consistently provides very balanced flavour.

Food Matches

The delicious pasta dishes of traditional Italian cuisine provide the perfect wine pairing, particularly meat sauces. It is also excellent with medium-aged cheeses and is especially suited to grilled and barbecued foods. Imperante Italian Red Wine goes very well with flavourful Mexican cuisine. Try it paired with chicken and chorizo enchiladas.
