Candoni Elviana Red Blend 2012 Veneto, Italy


My Rating 87 Points. 
Price $12.


This is a very nice Italian blend that seems more like a new world wine.

Ruby in color, but not very intense, with a wide red rim.

On the nose, red fruits, blueberries, cherries, cranberries, strawberries, spices, wood and white pepper.

Dry and Fruity on the palate with blueberries, licorice, strawberries, sweet cherries, spices and light black pepper.

Medium bodied, smooth, balanced and elegant, with nice acidity.

Nice, smooth, elegant finish with very soft tannins.

This was great right out of the bottle, I paired it with creamy cheeses and it could be drunk by itself. Not very sophisticated but very easy drinking.

A blend of Cabernet, Merlot, and Malbec.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
