Zamberlan Cabernet Sangiovese 2022
This wine is named for my father-in-law, Rinaldo Zamberlan.
He grew up in the Veneto, Northern Italy - home of the famous ripasso winemaking technique.
In ripasso, fresh grape juice is fermented in contact with dried grape skins. The resulting wines are dark, complex, and intensely fragrant.
For years, Rinaldo told me to stop discarding the dried grape skins from our flagship red, the JOSEPH Moda, "they're perfect for ripasso!"
Finally, I took his advice. We made this wine using a blend of Cabernet and Sangiovese, co-fermented in the ripasso style with JOSEPH Moda skins.
The result is a smooth, full-bodied red wine with black currant, dark chocolate, and tobacco flavours. The Sangiovese adds a burst of savoury cherry to the wine's finish.
