Tasting Notes Drink: 

Casa Vinicola Botter Spa was born as a retailer in 1928 in the Veneto region for sales of wines in casks and demi-johns to restaurants and small retailers. In the fifties the family expanded their horizons to selling wines across Central Europe and beyond. Throughout all this expansion, the Botter family retained control and the company is now run by the third generation and from their roots in Veneto they now have a portfolio of wines produced in some of Italy’s finest regions. 
This rich and robust red is made in a similar way to a Ripasso wine using a portion of dried Primitivo grapes and fermenting the wine a second time on the dried skins. The result is a fresh and aromatic red with an amazing concentration of plum, blackberry, cherry and chocolate flavours backed by a good balance between naturally soft tannins and light acidity that makes it a fantastic cheese wine and great with game and spicy pasta.
