Type: Red wine


“Crafted from the ancient Raboso grape that is native to our region,
Malanotte is a style of wine that almost died out.
My friends at Casa Roma winery kept a passion for this remarkably rich and complex red,
one of the longest maturing of any Italian wines,
and they have helped in its resurrection – a story that seems very fitting
when they retell the legend of Malanotte being the wine Jesus shared at the Last Supper!"

Cameron Douglas, The Shout, 2017

JK.14 Piave Malanotte 2011 Treviso, Italy – From the Raboso grape this wine presents an intriguing bouquet of red fruits – from blackberry to keri-berry, dark plum and black currant;  other aromas include wood spice, toast, tar, brown sugar and smoke. On the palate – dry, firm, plenty of tannins engage and challenge the senses and in typical Italian fashion dominate and demand food; plenty of acidity then fruit flavours that match the nose. Weighty and quite meaty, with a lengthy and fairly concentrated finish. Decant for service please – drinking best from now and through 2030.
