A refined offering from Astoria

Introducing Astoria “el Ruden” Veneto Rosso IGT A refined red with intense character.
Twelvebottles is pleased to introduce a distinguished new Venetian to its popular line-up of Astoria wines – “el Ruden”.
The rust coloured label (“el Ruden” means “rust” in the Venetian dialect) belies a refined blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Marzemino Passito. Dark ruby red colour and intense aroma with hints of wood nicely balancing the spicy notes of the grape varieties. Soft and finely poised taste with a substantial structure and plentiful aromas and tannins.
El Ruden is a well-balanced match for beef, poultry and soft cheeses
