Direct and natural descendant of the renowned Capo di Stato, this deep ruby red wine is the continuity in the “Bordeaux blending” tradition of our company. Venegazzù Riserva della Casa’s nose is initially characterised by its alcoholic structure that conveys a well defined hint of overripe marasca cherry joined to a flavour of cassis. The olfactory range is noteworthy, well combined with the oak, not preponderant, and it shows spicy hints of green pepper laid down on a musk background - clear indication of the wine’s long future. Impressive is the range of the balmy nuances and the liquorice sticks finish malted with a light and a very pleasant toasting. The taste is decidedly hot, dry and tannic. The wine is soft - despite its wealth of tannins. Venegazzù Riserva della Casa is ideal for meditation and for great occasions. It is excellent with fur game. With its richness in aromatic nuances it is equal to the subtlest palates.
