The southern part of Lake Garda is renowned for its production of white wines. This aera, where the first morainic hills arise, also produces red wines with structure and body, with Ronchedone top of the list.

We realized that certain areas and microclimate were ideal for a wine such as this. A combination of Marzemino, Sangiovese and10% Cabernet gives a wine that cannot go unnoticed. It has a rich, fruity nose, with a hint ofred fruit, macerated blackcurrants, kirsch, aromatic herbs and jam. On the palate it is powerful and incisive, clean and savoury, with a good degree of acidity. respecting the characteristics of the soil that produces it.

Ideally served with red meats requiring medium or lengthy cooking, game, mature cheeses, savoury pasta dishes and meat-based soups.
