For the past four generations in Fossalta di Piave in the heart of Venetia, domaine De Stefani (45 Ha) 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. This a nearly opaque ruby with pronounced aromas of black cherry, blackberry, cherry jam, mixed with chocolate and tobacco. Full body with lots of extract, exhuberant flavors, rich tannins with solid acidity backbone and multi layered persistent fruit finish. Powerful and muscular like his Amarone cousin, this one is for the long haul. Rated PG.
