WINERY: Venturini


DESCRIPTION: Dense, impenetrable ruby red with garnet glints. Sweet aromas of raspberries, currants and wild strawberries joined by notes of vanilla and floral hints of red roses seduce the nose. Massimino is a wine that expressed a high degree of compactness in the mouth, but also excellent balance: the alcohol content is offset by the freshness, and the perceptibly savory dryness of the tannins accompany the tail, with a happy return of fruit jam at the very end.

This wine is dedicated to our father, Massimino, a man with a steadfast, determined character whose rather brusque manner concealed a great heart and an invariably benevolent gaze.

Massimino is a wine obtained from a brief raisining of the grapes that gives the wine an extra round, velvety character.


BEST WITH: Excellent with mixed platters of grilled meats, for an original pairing we suggest that you try it with spicy foods like a meat goulash or a spicy  vegetable soup.

Azienda Agricola Venturini is located in San Floriano which is a village in part of the town of San Pietro in Cariano (Verona). It was established in 1963 and continues to grow thanks to love, experience and hard work of three generations. Beginning with Grandfather Antonio who passed it onto his son Massimino, who in turn placed it in the hands of his children: Daniele carefully follows the wine making process, Mirco passionately takes care of the vineyards and Giuseppina manages the business sector.

"Dedication and passion...
...Living everyday in close contact with nature, following and respecting its rhythm. It is our family’s admiring gaze towards the rows of grapevines as it proudly admire the ripened grapes. It is the memory of our grandfather Massimino’s loving touch on our faces with his rough hands, that represented the earth’s essence".
