WE CHOSE IT BECAUSE
It has a distinct flavor that is completely different from classic Valpolicella wines
Decisive, vertical and muscular: the blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon creates havoc, “tussle,” among Corte Bravi’s other wines made from native Veronese grapes.
Andrea and Ivano Brunelli handpick the Merlot grapes and let them dry for a month until the Cabernet Sauvignon is fully ripe, which is instead left to overripen on the vine. The grapes undergo a double maceration, one cold and one hot, in which fermentation occurs spontaneously and naturally. The wine is aged for 2 years in oak barrels and steel, then bottled and aged for at least 6 months in the bottle.
The color is an intense ruby red tending to dark purple.
Plum, spices and white chocolate are noticeable on the nose.
On the palate, dried plum and spices are found to combine with the licorice tones and soft tannins of this wine.
In the kitchen, the favorite dish of this wine is the bollito misto of the Veneto tradition; it also goes well with very fatty meats such as salami and cotechini, as well as aged cheeses.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in saying that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it gives to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
