2010 Corte Gardoni "Becco" Corvina Veronese

SKU #1093675 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Very pale cherry-red. Subtle perfume of strawberry, cherry, wild herbs and fresh mint. Supple, spicy and seamless, with lovely intensity and a saline, tactile umami quality that buffers the wine's dryness. Seems less exotic and cooler than the 2009 version, even though the earlier growing season was warmer. Refreshing and perfumed on the aftertaste, finishing with a light dusting of tannins, a sexy suggestion of cinnamon and sneaky length.  (4/2012)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
