Novellus Corvina Port Wood Finish 75 cl
Novellus is a unique wine concept since the oak with which the wine has been aged has been used for port wine aging before. There are some wines in the market that have been aged in whisky or rum barrels but we haven't heard of anyone using port wine barrels.
"By using oak that has been used for aging another product, we get completely new aromas to the wine, such as portwine styled aromas", says Markus Hannula, responsible for wine innovations at Altia.
How it's made
Novellus Corvina Port Wood Finish is made of 100% Italian Corvina grape, which is the most important grape used in the well known Amarone & Ripasso wines.
The wine gets is final aromas from oak, that has before been used for aging port wine. This is the only world in the world prepared with such a method.
Novellus Corvina Port Wood Finish is a perfect match for lighter meat as well as with bird meat. Also great with hard cheeses. Try it for example with whole fried pork, wild mushroom sauce and cheese potatos.
