Giuseppe Lonardi, Privilegia I.G.T.
(pree-vee-LAY-jah)

 

Tasting Notes: From the incomparable Giuseppe Lonardi, comes this revolutionary blend of Corvina, the primary grape in Amarone, and Cabernet Franc. It is elegant, with a delightful combination of bold Mediterranean fruits and a dusty potpourri finish. Matured for 22 months in French barriques, it is a neo-classic Italian wine that will age for 15 years, and a very limited production. Recently recognized by the Italian Sommelier Association as a top wine in Italia.
