2018 L'Arco Rosso del Veronese IGT
50% Corvina and Corvinone, 30% Rondinella, 15% Sangiovese Grosso, and 5% Molinara. The “youngest” of winemaker Luca Fedrigo’s characteristically bold blends, Rosso del Veronese is the sexy two-seater sports car among the portfolio’s “luxury” labels. Sangiovese fattens up the wine and makes it both interesting and age worthy. The grape amps up the blend’s flavor profile and brings the addition of dark cherries and a teasing hint of lavender. The finish outperforms for a medium-bodied wine, hanging on amid gripping tannins. Bold fruit, a long finish, Rosso del Veronese is a seductive bottle among Fedrigo’s range. Keep the menu old-school traditional for this fun wine: Spaghetti and meatballs, veal parmigiana, roasted leg of lamb, grilled steak with sautéed mushrooms.
