Venissa Rosso, Venice – 2012 – Vinous – 91 Points
91 points

The 2012 Rosso, a blend of 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, shows a pretty display of musky woodland berries, peppery florals and hints of blood orange. It’s silky yet poised, with crunchy red fruits and saline-mineral tones, as youthful tannins slowly saturate under an air of rosy inner florals. This finishes quite structured and dry, revealing hints of cranberry and pomegranate, as residual acids pinch at the cheeks. A few years of cellaring should unlock further depths.
