Montecorno is a red wine obtained from the Rebo grape, a cross between the Teroldego grown in Trentino and the Merlot grapes that grows only on the shores of the lake Garda, a relatively unknown Italian grape. The Rebo is then aged in oak to add complexity resulting in a full bodied red wine with a rich and fruity nose with hints of spices. Rebo matches perfectly boiled meat, game and aged cheese.
The artisan who made it
The Avanzi winery, located on the shore of Lake Garda, has been making wine for three generations, growing local grapes from Trebbiano di Lugana to produce their Lugana to the less known Groppello and Marzemino, together with international grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon. Nicola, together with his brother and cousins, the current generation together with the previous one still actively involved, work tirelessly to make outstanding wines.
