Bressan - 'Pignol' Venezia Giulia Rosso 1997 (1.5L)
If you’re looking for an age-worthy Italian red, you won’t be disappointed with Bressan’s “Pignol” Venezia Giulia Rosso 1997 (1.5L). This vintage boasts an intense ruby colour, with hints of orange shades that deepen with age. On the nose, this wine carries complex aromas of ripe cherry, stewed fruits and a hint of spice. On the palate, this well-balanced red has great depth and a velvety texture. The tannins are ripe and silky, while the acidity is moderate to low. The flavour profile finishes with notes of blackberry and spice, exquisitely complemented by smokey undertones that give it added complexity. This structured, generous wine is a great accompaniment to marbled steaks, roasted game birds and aged cheeses. It can also be enjoyed with more delicate dishes like seared salmon or grilled vegetable skewers. A bottle of “Pignol” promises a delicious dining experience regardless of what’s chosen to accompany it.
