Rive Della Chiesa
Rive Della Chiesa winery, in Selva del Montello, in the province of Treviso, is run by the Gasparetto brothers Luigi and Michele who deal with all phases of wine production. Thanks to a strong family tradition and specialized technical training they guarantee a high-quality product so that the harvest can express its characteristics at its best.
The first vineyard purchased by the Gasparetto family has located nearby an old country church “Rive Della Chiesa”, a name discovered through ancient documents of the cadasters. For that reason, they decided to call the winery « Rive Della Chiesa ».
Rive Della Chiesa vineyards arose on the slopes of “Montello”, a little hillock in the Treviso province. Melting sagely the respect of traditions and the innovation of modern oenology, the Rive Della Chiesa winery offers to its devoted customers a wide range of high-quality wines. During the production, they fully respect nature and the highest standards of quality to offer the customers a very complete sensory experience in which one can feel the territory along with the wine.
Rive Della Chiesa’s new vineyards located in the Montello area are in the most suitable climate for vine growing. They devote all their passion, their expertise, and their proficiency to the art of winemaking while always respecting the traditions where antique taste and modern know-how are melted.
Merlot is a varietal that sits smack dab in the middle of the red wine spectrum, with medium levels of tannin, acidity, and alcohol (12-15%). It's most famous for its red-fruit flavors (namely cherry, plum, and raspberry), easy-drinking tannins, and super-soft finish.
Rosé wine with food
The best drinking temperature for rosé wine is between 8-12°C, and it tastes better when it is slightly chilled. Rosé is very suitable for Asian tastes. It is not as sour as white wine, and it does not have the tannins of red wine. The most important thing is that she is beautiful in color. Vietnamese restaurant An Nam also launched Rosé Pairing. In the beginning, some diners doubted her taste. Fortunately, her pink color attracted female customers, and she was not too sour or too strong, so it can be well matched from appetizers to desserts!
Rose wine is suitable for dishes with rich taste, such as paella, grilled chicken with spices, grilled fish with tomato sauce, etc. For Chinese food, the acidity of wine can dissolve the greasiness of Shandong cuisine. Sweet Blush has a sweet taste and can be paired with some light dishes, as well as spicy food or desserts; when paired with Chinese food, it can defuse the spicy taste of Sichuan and Hunan dishes.
Veneto - the most famous of the three 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.
