Our online feature this week is the 2021 Botter Gran Passione Rosso (Veneto, Italy) – $18.49 (regularly $22.49).

Botter is a family business started in 1928 by Carlo Botter in a small town near Venice selling their grapes wholesale as bulk wine. They now own 23 brands across Italy, of which Gran Passione is one. Made for “classic-enthusiasts and hedonists” who know how to carve out good times in a fast-paced society and search of wine that makes them happy. Its for people who want a rich, warming, smooth, easy drinking red. “Gran Passione represents Botter’s expression and devotion to our work that honors the tradition of our land; something to be passionate about.”

Made from Merlot and Corvina – the main grape in Valpolicella and Amarone – grapes are picked when overripe and starting to dry out shrinking to concentrate the grapes, while reducing the water content and concentrates the sugars, giving a rich, smooth and sweet fruit flavour while showcasing raisins, chocolate, blackberry and black cherry notes. Think Ripasso alternative. This is the wine to pair with grilled meats, stews and cheeses.
