Corvina Veronese - David Sterza
£20.95

This represents a fascinating opportunity to try the Corvina grape variety as a 100% varietal wine (Corvina is usually one of many constituents that make up the famous Amarone style produced in Veneto). Christmas cake, kirsch and raisins all dominate on the nose before giving way to a fruit-forward, nearly (but not quite) sweet core.

A modern and straight version of Amarone which without the "appassimento" technique is more focussed on freshness.
