About Tai Rosso

Tai Rosso is exclusive to Vicenza in Veneto, where the wine region Colli Berici has cultivated the grape for centuries.

Colli Berici is an Italian DOC region covering a wide range of wine styles including Red, White, Sparling, and Rosé.

The genetic nature of Tai Rosso is the same as French Grenache, Spanish Garnacha, and Sardinian Cannonau, but in Vicenza it has a specific generic identity.

The grape was known as Tocai Rosso until 2007, when Hungary claimed the Tocai name, and Tocai Rosso converted to Tai Rosso.

About Barbarano

Tai Rosso is also known as Barbarano, the name of a town in the wine producing area of Colli Berici.

According to a legend, a carpenter of Barbarano, working for the Empress Maria Theresa of Austria, brought Tocai Rosso to Barbarano after a mission in Hungary.

The Ideal Glass

The Bordeaux glass is perfect for medium to full bodied red wines.

It is taller than other red wine glasses, and has a slimmer bowl.

The large size of the glass allows the fruit bouquet to develop. It smooths out rough edges, plays down tannins, and allows the wines to achieve balance.

The slimmer bowl sends the wine directly to the back of the mouth for maximum taste.

Veneto

Veneto is famous for its capital Venezia, and the wines Prosecco, Soave, and Amarone.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
