Why the winemaker recommends Antonio Rigoni Carménère Piave DOC
The Carmenère is a red grape variety, a rare grape that has survived the phylloxera. Originally from Bordeaux, it is an excellent daily wine that combines foods for different reasons. Due to its natural superior acidity, it is never lost when paired next to foods with more acidic sauces. Another advantage is the pepper and herbaceous flavor of the Carmenère, which often enriches roast meats, the lower tannin in Carmenère makes it a friendly option for lighter and less fat dishes. In short, this is a wine to keep in your cellar all year.
Characteristics of Antonio Rigoni Carménère wine
Red wine with brilliant ruby reflections. Most Carménère wines have many similarities in terms of body and consistency with Merlot. It has amazing aromas of raspberry sauce, black cherry, green peppercorns and a granite-like minerality. You can expect to find Carménère wines with fruity aromas of red berries and sour raspberry flavors with a subtle bitter taste similar to cabbage. At the upper end, the bitter herbaceous notes leave the scene in favor of sweet berries, refined light tannins and a bittersweet note, like cocoa powder.
