After the hand harvest, the grapes are pressed and the fermentation starts; the skins are left in the must for a period to extract and intensify the flavors and the characteristic ruby red color. Afterwards, the wine is staged in oak vats for about 3 or 4 months; this aging gives the pleasant notes of ripe fruits, raisins, spices and vanilla. Gran Passione has an intense purple color, tending towards amber with ageing. It is full-bodied with a solid structure due to the elevated alcohol and fine balance between soft tannins and acidity from rich red and black fruits.
Great wine for roasted and grilled meats. Ideal with game dishes. Excellent with mature hard cheeses.
