      Winemaker Notes

      This fruity, sweet wine has characteristics of delicate flowers and rich honey balanced by a moderate level of acidity. Intense scent with sent of vanilla and violet flower. Golden color, brilliant yellow.

      Ideal with pastries, all types of sweets, and almonds.

      Made primarily from Verduzzo, with a small percentage of other native grapes, this opens with aromas of caramel, butterscotch, pine nut and sweet apricot. The acidity keeps the palate refreshed. This tastes like it should cost two or three times its price.

      Tenuta Polvaro, Veneto, Italy
      Image of winery
      The Tenuta Polvaro estate was founded by the Polvaro family in 1681. This noble Venetian family completely transformed the original forest plot into beautifully cultivated fields suitable for growing the finest grapes. They built the manor house, "barchessa" (open barn) and sacred chapel, both of which we still admire today.

      The Candoni De Zan family has purchased the Tenuta Polvaro estate and has brought it back to its original beauty and splendor with respect to its seventeenth century architecture. The vineyard itself has also undergone a gradual restoration process. The soil has been delicately worked in order to preserve its natural fertilization and structure. The Candoni De Zan family placed supreme importance to giving proper respect to the natural landscape and surrounding environment during their restoration process.

      A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

      Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.

      Apart from the classics, we find many regional gems of different styles.

      Late harvest wines are probably the easiest to understand. Grapes are picked so late that the sugars build up and residual sugar remains after the fermentation process. Ice wine, a style founded in Germany and there referred to as eiswein, is an extreme late harvest wine, produced from grapes frozen on the vine, and pressed while still frozen, resulting in a higher concentration of sugar. It is becoming a specialty of Canada as well, where it takes on the English name of ice wine.

      Vin Santo, literally “holy wine,” is a Tuscan sweet wine made from drying the local white grapes Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia in the winery and not pressing until somewhere between November and March.

      Rutherglen is an historic wine region in northeast Victoria, Australia, famous for its fortified Topaque and Muscat with complex tawny characteristics.
