If you love Bordeaux-inspired reds, Serafini & Vidotto's Phigaia will be right up your alley. It's a bold, full-bodied blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. The winery is located in Montello-Colli Asolani DOC in Veneto, in north-eastern Italy. It was founded in 1986 by winemaking friends Francesco Serafini and Antonello Vidotto, but the grape-growing history of the land stretches back hundreds of years. In particular, the region has always been famed for their red wines, and one sip of Phigaia will show you why. Careful farming is at the heart of everything that Serafini & Vidotto do, and yields are kept low to ensure high quality - the average output is only about one bottle per vine. After fermentation, the final blend is aged for anywhere from 12-18 months in oak.

Ruby red of great brilliance with a slight shimmer of pomegranate on the surface.

First impression in the nose: rich in fruity notes of Amarena cherries, sour cherries and black currants, followed by elegant herbal nuances and fried pepper as well as coffee, vanilla bean and pink pepper.

Exquisite and persuading the first impression on the tongue with fresh fruity notes, round tannins and a great elegance which is combined with spicy softness and well-balanced alcohol; persistent spicy finish with a hint of licorice.
