TASTING NOTES: Distinct aroma of chocolate dispersed in the black cherry and dry fruit flavor background. Pairs well with all sorts of desserts, cakes, and as an after-dinner sipper.
THE GRAPE:The Chambourcin grape is a hybrid variety created by Joannes Seyve around 1950 by crossing Seyve-Villard 12-417 and Chancellor. It requires a long growing season and when fully ripen can produce bold and full bodied wines with intense red-purple color. Because of its resistance to disease and its ability to create superior wines, Chambourcin is used to produce dry, deep colored wine with fully aromatic flavors without unpleasant hybrid nuances.
VINTNER'S NOTE: Using non-aged Porto Rosso as a base, a special organic chocolate essence is skillfully blended to create Chocolate Porto Rosso.
