Elviana Red Blend
Elviana is a fresh and vibrant blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Malbec, with aromas of strawberry and cherry and a touch of spicy notes. It has a great structure and complexity with smooth and velvety tannins. The initial impression of the wine on the palate is sweet, and then it rolls into a well-rounded mid-palate where the bright red fruits erupt. Secondary flavors of bakers’ chocolate, pomegranate, toast, dried herbs, tobacco and cola are followed by a smooth, lingering finish that is complemented by the natural sweetness and acidity of the wine.

Vineyard & Winemaking Notes
For our Elviana Red Blend, we selected grapes from some of our premier vineyards on the Candoni properties in Veneto. Where the growing season is relatively cool, which allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and develop their flavors over a longer period of time. Each varietal is selected by our winemaker to give this wine balance and nuance.
Each variety is fermented separately before blending, with maceration lasting from 10 to 13 days. After blending, Elviana Red Blend ages for a further 12 months in 225 liter oak barrels.
Pairs exceptionally well with grilled steaks, roasted meats, risotto, and cheeses.
How to Serve
Serve at 64-68°F in large transparent crystal goblets.
Conserve in a cool, dark cellar at a constant temperature, ensuring that the bottle is in a horizontal position.
he Veneto region is located in Northeastern Italy, lying between the foothills of the Alps and the top of the Adriatic Sea. This ribbon of land, nestled among picturesque vineyards, is home to charming cities such as Verona, Vicenza, Padova, Treviso, and Veneto’s crowning beauty: Venice. Veneto offers numerous combinations of microclimates, thanks to the Dolomites blocking cold temperatures from central Europe, indigenous grapes and wine traditions that hold their own in spectacular fashion. No other region boasts such winemaking diversity in such close proximity. From hearty reds to fragrant sparklers, these radically unique expressions are representative of what drives Italy’s global wine success. Geography might help explain why this region is home to so many individual pockets of wine but it is especially the agricultural and entrepreneurial spirit of its people to make this area one of the leading wine making region in the world.
