High quality and slightly unusual! Ruden in Venetian dialect means rust, hence the colour of the label. It is a blend of equal quantities of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir with just 10% of Raboso, which undergoes drying on straw matting for 3 months. to intensify the flavour and add an almost Amarone edge to the wine. Aged for 9 months in French oak barrels to round-out the tannins. The wine is a dark, ruby red with aromas of black and red fruits with some spice. On the palate it is soft, with a deep structure, plentiful of fruit with some final notes of dried berries. Drink it with beef or poultry or simply sip it with a few pieces of Parmesan to while away the late hours of the night.
