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.
Description: Intense bouquet with immediate cherry flavour changing to blackberries and liquorice. Dry and herbaceous on the palate, round and full bodied.
Review: “The wine pours a bright cherry red, though not that deep. The nose is intensely aromatic with alpine strawberries and cherry, plus cinnamon and other spices in the background. The palate is rich and lithe, full of red and black fruit. It’s a soft and supple wine; tannins are present but ripe. The best I’ve tasted ever.” Wine reviewer Frankie Cook, Frankie’s Frankly wines
