Bastianich Calabrone 2007

Bastianich Calabrone 750ML 2007   
Sku: 062257

Calabrone is an estate reserve released only when an excellent vintage is followed by a dry and mild September and October, when a precentage of the Refosco and all of the Schioppettino undergo appassimento (drying). As in the case of Amarone, the drying process not only intensifies the flavors of these distinctive grapes, but softens some of their natural tannic bite.

Tasting notes
The nose is filled with chocolate, coffee, spices and mature red fruit. The palate has considerable power and grip while maintaining elegance. Calabrone will surely benefit from additional cellar time, at least 5 years.

Technical notes
Calabrone Grappa is distilled from the skins of Bastianich Calabrone Pignolo, Refosco passito, Cabernet Franc passito, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Food pairing
With dry extract levels near or greater to those of most Amarone, this is a big red wine for robust dishes.
