Bold and assertive with strength and structure, Eclipse FORZA quickly became an immensely popular “short run” offering back in 2015. Now it’s back and here to stay!
FORZA, which means strength in Italian, is a bold red blend from Veneto, Italy. It’s a spectacular partnership of Corvina, Sangiovese and Barbera and includes grape skins for added depth. After popular demand, Winexpert has secured a regular supply of superb quality juice and FORZA’s return will coincide with the total lunar eclipse happening January 31,2018.
Located in Northeast Italy, just north of Venice, the Veneto stretches across most of the northern reaches of the Adriatic Sea. The Veneto is know to experience hot summers and cool winters, and thanks to its proximity to the sea, less extreme weather than other northeastern regions.
The wine: deep ruby colour with aromas of plum, smoke and spice. Rich flavours of dark fruit, chocolate, and cedar with lingering oak and a firm, long finish.
FORZA pairs wonderfully with braised meats and rich risottos. Avoid foods with spicy heat which will be amplified by the high alcohol. Choose a dish that is of equal weight so that it is not overpowered by the fullness of the wine.
Ready in 8 weeks, this wine kit will produce approximately 23L of finished wine (roughly thirty 750ml bottles) and is priced at $222 On-Premise or $166 Kit-Only.
