Cellar for up to 7 years. No need to decant before serving.

The family-run Cantina Tinazzi dates back to 1968 when the winery was founded in Cavaion Veronese. By 1984 the Tinazzis were already exporting their wines abroad and in 1986 they purchased their family estate, Tenuta Valleselle, in Bardolino. In recent years the family have continued to expand and acquire estates in other Italian regions, including Feudro Croce in Puglia and Poderi Campopian in Sant'Ambrogio Di Valpolicella.

Opera No. 3 is a dark and handsome red made in the typical Tinazzi style with plenty of intense black fruit peppered with hints of sweet spice, dark chocolate and bitter licorice. The wine is composed of Corvina, Primitivo and Nero d’Avola grapes which are gently pressed and destemmed before vinification. The fruit is then macerated and fermented over 10-15 days before being aged in oak barrels.

The result is an easy-drinking, fruit forward red which opens with rich cassis, black cherry and plum notes along with hints of cigar box spice and woodsmoke. The first sip reveals a generous full body and firm tannins along with a smooth texture and long finish. Great to drink with hearty red meat dishes like steak, beef stews or venison and with tomato-based pasta dishes.
