Jul 8, 2015

Bold and assertive. Strength and structure.
A new Eclipse is here.
But just like the real thing, this rare phenomenon can only be experienced for a limited time.

Introducing a new, limited release from Eclipse: FORZA.

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. Winexpert has secured a limited quantity of superb quality juice and is able to offer this wine as a limited release expected to last about one year.

FORZA can be ordered now at Just Fine Wine. The wine kits will be available in-store beginning the week of July 13, 2015 and until quantities run out. Ready in 8 weeks, this wine kit will produce approximately 23L of finished wine (roughly thirty 750ml bottles) and is priced at $210 On-Premise or $160 Kit-Only. Contact us to secure yours today!

REGION: Veneto, Italy
Located in Northeast Italy, just North of Venice, the Veneto stretches across most of the northern reaches of the Adriatic Sea. The Veneto is known to experience hot summers and cool winters, and thanks to its proximity to the sea, less extreme weather than other Northeastern regions. Silty, sandy soil prevails throughout the Veneto, with influences of clay and calcareous debris. The Veneto produces the most wine in volume in Northeast Italy.

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.

FOOD PAIRING: 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.

STYLE: Bold Red        SWEETNESS: Dry        BODY: Full        OAK: Heavy        ALCOHOL: 16%*

PRICE: $210 On-Premise | $160.00 Take-Home

*Alcohol level based on following Winexpert winemaking instructions.
