For the past four generations in Fossalta di Piave in the heart of Venetia, domaine De Stefani(45Ha) is one of the most highly rated of the region. Converted to organic farming, owner and winemaker Alessandro is a true promoter of the terroir and its traditionnal varietals. A late harvested single vineyard selection lies at the origin of this special cuvée. Deep ruby, exhuberant scents of ripe black fruits, prune, violet chewy tobacco and rhum cake. This is a full body muscular wine with solid structure and layers of velvety tannins with a blackberry preserves extra long finish. This should find a deep dark spot in your cellar. Rated PG. Please note this is De Stefani stellar RABOSO Cuvée of fame. As of 2012 vintage it has been renamed MALANOTTE to recognized the venetian family that first valorized this wine.
