Venissa Rosso 2011 Imperiale


The first vintage of Venissa Rosso. An exceptional red wine that conveys the heart of Native Venice.

This wine stands out for its ruby red colour with violet nuances. On the nose it offers notes of salt marsh flowers together with a fruity sensation that recalls dark woodland fruit such as blackberries and blueberries and more complex expressions like tobacco with briny notes. On the palate, the back of the nose at first receives a balsamic and saline perception which then recovers a sensation of dark fruit, liquorice and dark chocolate. The finale presents a wine that is mellow and creamy with long lasting persistence.

In Giovanni Moretti’s creation the label has been replaced by a precious
sheet of copper fashioned by the modern day descendent of the ancient
Battiloro family. The leaf was applied by hand and the bottle was then
re-fired in the ovens on the island of Murano.
