Raasòl Veneto IGT Passito Rosso
Ravazzol is the hamlet where the Contrámalini winery is located, and “Raasòl” is how it is pronounced in the local dialect. This wine therefore intends to pay tribute to the company’s origins – including its use of exclusively local grapes – but presenting itself in a more contemporary style as a well-structured wine, suitable for accompanying substantial and sophisticated dishes.
Production zone: Pescantina
Grapes: Corvina Veronese, Corvinone, Rondinella, Croatina
Production: harvesting, the grapes are laid down to dry in well-ventilated rooms until the end of January, then pressed and destemmed. Fermentation takes place with maceration on the skins at 17°-18°C, with daily automatic punching down of the cap and délestage.
Maturation: 48 min Slavonian oak casks and barriques, and a few months in bottle.
Residual sugar: 10 g/l.

Service: this is a full-bodied wine, so we recommend that you uncork it at least two hours before serving it in very large glasses, at not too high a temperature (17°C)
Food pairings: it is excellent with stuffed roasts, game and matured cold cuts
