NONNO MARIO

Type: Red wine


“Mario is as much a part of my village of Treviso as the cobbled via and vine-covered hills
– and he is ‘old-school’ Italian to the heart. His passions echo those of his father,
and his father before him… family is everything.
You see it in the glint of his eye when his grandchildren – my children – yell ‘Nonno’
and run into his open his arms. And just like Mario, his favourite wine
is unique to this region, charmingly intense, and utterly unforgettable…
so really, I had no choice but to name this wine for him. Nonno Mario.”
John Kirwan

 

CARMENÉRE PIAVE DOC
From the Bordeaux variety this is a red wine with a good body and unmistakable character. When young the bouquet is typically grassy, a sensation which weakens as the wine ages.
