Porta Vita Rosso
Grape Varieties50% Merlot, 30% Schiava, 20% Teroldego
AppellationDelle Venezie IGT
BackgroundPorta Vita literally translated means to Bring Life. The wines come from northeastern Italys Tre Venezie-a region embracing the majesty of the snow-capped Dolomite Alps and the picturesque beauty of Italys romantic Lake District. They reflect the Italian spirit of embracing and celebrating life and bringing energy to every shared meal and thus has become a welcome and familiar feature on many American dining tables.
VinificationThe three grape varieties are harvested and vinified separately as they ripen at different times. Merlot tends to ripen early and is the first to be picked; then comes Teroldego and Schiava around late September or early October.
