Passori Rosso scoops Platinum award at the San Diego International Wine Competition 2015
After conquering the UK, Passori is now impressing judges across the pond with its easy and approachable style, fruit forward lusciousness and long, impressive length, all for a very accessible price.
The San Diego International Wine Competition is judged by some of the most influential wine professionals, from experienced winemakers to notorious journalists, all passionate about tasting.
Notes from the judges
“Much as they do in Tuscany, vintners in other parts of Italy are enamoured of Merlot because of its tendency to ripen early. And so it is that this red blend from Italy’s northerly Veneto district is 60 percent Merlot, with the rest the indigenous grape Corvina, which is prominent in the Valpolicella of the Veneto. The Passori is fermented to medium dryness and shows intense black fruit characteristics. The slightly elevated level of residual sugar (1 percent) softens the palate. A Platinum award winner at the 2015 San Diego International Wine Competition. 94 Points.
This well received industry award is another sure sign of Passori’s continuing success worldwide.
