Reviews
• Decanter: 91 Fattori purchased the 12ha Col de la Bastia property in Montecchia in 2009. There, limestone and yellow sandstone create the ideal place for Corvina. Made with fruit from vineyards more than 20 years old, this wine is fermented in stainless steel and aged in oak. The nose has redcurrant, blackberry coulis, bramble undertones, spice and raspberry jam. The palate has a great core of fruit and round tannins. The 2018 vintage gives freshness and balance. Drink 2021-2024.
