Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
A pure expression of Carmenère, this is a dark and hearty red wine that is dense and rich at its core. The 2015 Colli Berici Carmenere Riserva Oratorio di San Lorenzo offers intense notes of plummy black fruit with spicy contours of teriyaki or barbecue smoke. The grapes are fermented over a 14-day period, and the finished wine is left to rest in new and used barrique for 18 months. This is a thick and bold red to pair with a T-bone steak. This wine is only produced in the best vintages, and production numbers fall between 5,000 and 10,000 bottles, depending on the quantities produced per vintage. ... More details

Varietal: Carmenere

Carmenere grapes thrive in moderately warm climates, and have long since spread outwards from their native France to other countries around the world. Back at home, they are included on the list of fine grape varietals allowed for inclusion in the excellent blended wines of Bordeaux, where they are prized for their strong character, deep red color and powerful flavors and aromas. Elsewhere, they are also commonly used as a blending grape, but it is becoming more usual to see single variety bottles made with this special blue grape varietal. Carmenere is famed for its unusual flavors and powerful aromas, which often include wonderful notes of leather and cherries, tobacco and chocolate. As such, it is much in demand by wineries wishing to make memorable wines with a lasting character.

Region: Veneto

The wine region of Veneto in north-eastern Italy has long been associated with fine wines, but also with the spirit of innovation which is typical of the region and which made it an important area of Europe throughout history. Indeed, today Veneto's wine-makers are recognized as the most modernized in all of Italy, using contemporary techniques to make the best of the high quality grape varietals which flourish in the region. These include the wonderful Garganega varietal, which is the grape used for the production of Veneto's widely loved Soave white wine, and Glera and Verduzzo, which are both used in more traditional wines of the region. The region benefits from a cooler climate, but one which is sheltered by the Alps, producing balanced and consistent climatic conditions ideal for viticulture.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
