Master Vintner Sommelier Select Rosso Ardente w/Skins (6G)
The very best winemakers in the world know that exceptional wine starts in the vineyard, with the perfect combination of sunlight, soil, rain and careful cultivation. Crafting your own signature wines to that very same standard starts here...with Sommelier Select, exclusively from Master Vintner.
These grapes are concentrated in the sun, increasing not only the sugars but also the amount of fruit and tannin from the skins. The aroma is rich, voluptuous, heavy and redolent of black fruit. Tart cherry and a gripping finish flirts with aromas of almond and toasty spice; this wine repays aging like few others can..
Sommelier Select Rosso Ardente includes grapeskins* in the kit. Grapeskins are an excellent addition to wine kits. Not only do they enhance body, mouth-feel and tannin, they also boost color, flavor and aroma. This is because all of the raw ingredients for these things are found in the skin of a red grape. All of the red juices are macerated in our wineries to get the most out of their skins, but adding an extra dose of skin material turns up the volume on the wine character.
The trade-off for the extra character is that the wines are incredibly bold when they're young. A lot of people think that's a good thing, but the other side of it is that when they're properly aged (six months to a year) they pay off big, and taste like a much more expensive bottle of commercial wine.
They're a little extra, but once you taste your wine, you'll know immediately where that money went--straight to the flavor!

*This recipe kit uses a RealGrape pack to boost flavor and body. Because the grape skins are not dried, they take up more space in your fermentor. This recipe requires the larger 7.9 gallon wine fermentor.
