H-Hero Rosso Pizzolato
H-Hero Rosso is a Merlot by La Cantina Pizzolato, who impressively for the Veneto, works only with organic grapes. Distinctly fruity on the nose showing blackcurrant and attractive floral notes. Dry, fruity and full-bodied, with a firm tannic structure and delicate nuance of pepper.
The vineyards are situated on the plains and hillsides near the Piave river that flows through the rich flourishing countryside in the north of Treviso. The organically grown Merlot grapes are harvested by hand late in August. The Bianco is 100% Chardonnay, and the Rosato and Rosso are both 100% Merlot.
Settimo Pizzolato is the latest of five generations of the family who have made wine here. The estate has been organic since 1991; about 10 years ago energetic Settimo pushed through a quantum leap upwards in quality. With 50 hectares of his own and contracts for grapes from another 50 belonging to long-term neighbouring organic growers, he runs a significant operation which is improving in quality and focus exponentially. The entry level H-Hero range form the perfect house pour trio, displaying typicity and real pureness of fresh fruit, thanks to the care taken in selecting quality grapes. Their superhero comic-strip labels represent their everyday hero wine status, true wines of the people!
Matches: great with many pasta dishes.

As with all wines on this website, this wine has been made without animal products. This is not the case with so many wines that are commonly on sale in the UK. Far too many wines have animal products used as a so-called production aid; they will often have a large array of chemical additives as well. Have a look at our page on additives allowed in wines. Many vegan wines are also organic or better still bio-dynamically grown. The care taken in growing the grapes and making the wine comes through in the taste of the final product. This is a vegan wine.
