About Casa Vinicola Botter: Founded in 1928 in the Veneto region, 30 kms northeast of Venice, by Carlo Botter, the company began as a small business trading in local Veneto wines in barrels and demijohns. The purchase of a small winery and a few acres of land in Veneto allowed Carlo to start bottling wines from his own estate. Now run by the third generation Bottter family it continues to makes wines from its own vineyards, the 60 hectare organic La Di Motte estate in Veneto and Fruili. Drawing on more than 70 years winemaking experience the company also vilifies grapes from estates across Italy, from Veneto in the North to Apulia and Sicily in the South, giving it a truly national identity and a large portfolio of very high quality wines.

This wine has a very solid structure due to a relatively high alcohol and the balance between soft tannins and acidity. It is fruity, with notes of plums, cherry marmalade, tobacco and spice with an aftertaste of cocoa, coffee and vanilla. It is matured in stainless steel, wooden vats before bottling and being released for sale.
