100% hand-picked - the most balanced hybrid structure of the century. This wine is inspired by Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, two characteristics of grape varieties. They are full-bodied, structured and persistent. When they coexist and are combined into the same wine, like the famous popular adage "Dugal: Due Galli (two roosters in the chicken coop)", a perfect balance is always found.
The perfect balance brings out a deep ruby red with a pronounced aroma of red berries with a hint of spiciness. Full-bodied, velvety and persistent. Pair it with a variety of red meats, aged cheeses, pasta and risotto for a more balanced feel.
Tinazzi - CA' DE' ROCCHI
This is a vineyard owned by the Tinazzi family, located in Lazise, Verona, in the heart of Valpolicella, in the juicing cellar of Sant' Ambrogio. It is equipped with modern winemaking and drying equipment for producing famous products such as Amarone Della Valpolicella and Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso. Winery StoryWork hard and set foot on the road of the outstanding manorIn the beginning, Tinazzi was a small business producing mainly wines from Verona and selling them locally. With years of hard work and sales growth, the business expanded to Lombardy and the whole of northern Italy. Now its wines have been dumped throughout Europe, America, and Asia. The company owns 72 vineyards, with four estates in Veneto and Puglia. Currently, it is managed by the founder's son Gian Andrea and his grandsons Giorgio and Francesca, respectively. In Puglia, the Tinagi San wine cellar has become an outstanding manner for producing internationally rated wines.
Merlot is a dark blue–colored wine grape variety, that is used as both a blending grape and for varietal wines. The name Merlot is thought to be a diminutive of merle, the French name for the blackbird, probably a reference to the color of the grape. Its softness and "fleshiness", combined with its earlier ripening, make Merlot a popular grape for blending with the sterner, later-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon, which tends to be higher in tannin.
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most widely recognized red wine grape varieties. It is grown in nearly every major wine-producing country among a diverse spectrum of climates from Australia and British Columbia, Canada to Lebanon's Beqaa Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon became internationally recognized through its prominence in Bordeaux wines where it is often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
Veneto - the most famous of the 3 major producing regions in northeastern Italy
Veneto is a substantial and increasingly important wine region in the northeastern corner of Italy. Administratively it forms part of the Triveneto zone, along with its smaller neighbors Trentino-Alto Adige and Friuli-Venezia Giulia. In terms of geography, culture and wine styles, it represents a transition between the alpine, Germano-Slavic end of Italy and the warmer, drier, more Roman lands to the south.
Veneto is slightly smaller than Italy's other main wine-producing regions – Piedmont, Tuscany, Lombardy, Puglia and Sicily – yet it generates more wine than any of them. Although the southern regions Sicily and Puglia were for a long time Italy's main wine producers, this balance began to shift north towards Veneto in the latter half of the 20th Century. In the 1990s, southern Italian wine languished in an increasingly competitive and demanding world, while Veneto upped its game, gaining recognition with such wines as Valpolicella, Amarone, Soave and Prosecco.
With fruity red Valpolicella complementing its intense Amarone and sweet Recioto counterparts, Veneto is armed with a formidable portfolio of red wines to go with its refreshing whites, such as Soave and sparkling Prosecco. Although much of the new vineyard area that supported Veneto's increased wine output was of questionable viticultural quality, today more than 25 percent of the region's wine is made and sold under DOC/DOCG titles.
