Blend N°3 IGT

Jancis Robinson

“The wine smells like cigar smoke, old chamois leather and pine needles at night in a forest. It tastes of plum jam and juniper, kirsch and Kahlua, chocolate-mint leaves. Despite this, the wine is remarkably fresh! Dangerously drinkable (with one eye on that 15.5% alcohol), given the velvety crush of tannins, cherry-sweet juice and more caraway spice in the finish. Superb balance. Truly accomplished. (TC)”

Vinification

We (Paolo Creazzi & co.) have studied and repeatedly tried to follow new paths while always trying to keep a strong link with our territory and the past. The Ammandorlato project is based on this desire and these ideals. This is a mythical and unique wine that nature does not always allow it to produce, called Blend N°3. This wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Corvina grapes. During the first vintage, the Cabernet Sauvignon and Corvina Veronese grapes were harvested in the years when nature did not allow this wine to be produced. Only at the third vintage was Paolo satisfied with the final result. Hence the name Blend N°3. The wine consists of 8 parts Cabernet Sauvignon dried for 30 days and 2 parts fresh Corvina Veronese. The grapes are then placed in barriques and tonneaux for 60 months. All grapes are picked by hand.

Colour

The Blend N°3 has a ruby red color.

Odor

On the nose, the wine has notes of ripe, distilled fruit, blackberries, black cocoa, tonka bean and a hint of blueberry sweetness.

Taste impression

On the palate, Blend N°3 gives a dry palate that has flavor and is accompanied by great structure. This results in a wine that can be called “dazzling” good.

Culinary advice

This Blend N°3 from Cà Dei Maghi is best combined with dishes such as long-cooked meat and game.
