Lovo 'Blossom Rosso'
This blend comes from the Veneto region of northeastern Italy, home to the velvety reds of Amarone della Valpolicella. Winemaker Salvatore Lovo enjoys light reds, so that's exactly what he and his daughter Silvia went for when they made this wine. Soft and plush, it has a flavor richness and velvety characteristics that you'd expect from Ripasso-style wines, but a lightness that you wouldn't. It's easy-drinking and smooth, with flavors of ripe strawberry, red plum, roasted red pepper, and vanilla on the palate. Fruity, soft acidity leads into a silky finish.
