Italian Rossa Ardente w/ Skins Wine Kit - Master Vintner Sommelier Select

SKU: 43163

Italy's original 'blockbuster', these grapes are concentrated in the sun, increasing not only the sugars but also the amount of fruit and tannin from the skins.

The aroma is rich, voluptuous, heavy and redolent of black fruit. Tart cherry and a gripping finish flirts with aromas of almond and toasty spice: this wine repays aging like few others can.

Yield: 6 Gallons

Italy's original 'blockbuster', these grapes are concentrated in the sun, increasing not only the sugars but also the amount of fruit and tannin from the skins. The aroma is rich, voluptuous, heavy and redolent of black fruit. Tart cherry and a gripping finish flirts with aromas of almond and toasty spice: this wine repays aging like few others can.

Sommelier Select™ Italian Rossa Ardente includes grapeskins* in the kit. Grapeskins are an excellent addition to wine kits. Not only do they enhance body, mouth-feel and tannin, they also boost color, flavor and aroma. This is because all of the raw ingredients for these things are found in the skin of a red grape. All of our red juices are macerated in our wineries to get the most out of their skins, but adding an extra dose of skin material turns up the volume on the wine's character.

Yield: 6 Gallons

*This recipe kit uses a RealGrape pack to boost flavor and body. Because the grape skins are not dried, they take up more space in your fermentor. This recipe requires the larger 7.9 gallon wine fermentor.

Rosso Ardente is fabulosso!
First time I'd dealt with skins but not a hassle. Finished product is exceptional taste , rich bouquet and a spicy finish that you'll remember. The berries make it very special. My people want a lot more of it.

Excellent Italian
Started out strong "ardente" means "burning" (could mean "passionate". Aged VERY well and smooth. Great, rich flavor. Love this kit!
